Melaleuca incana 'Prostrate Form' (Prostrate Gray Honey-myrtle) - This is a low growing form of the Gray Honey Myrtle with long arching branches that rise to 12 to 18 inches before cascading downward. The leaves are small (1/2 inch long), gray, narrow and linear-lanceolate in shape, giving the plant an overall soft look. Small whitish-yellow bottle-brush flowers appear late spring through early summer. Although it is drought resistant once established, this plant looks better with occasional watering. It can be damaged by hard frosts though is hardy to about 20 degrees F- cut back any damaged portions after the threat of all frosts has passed. We received this great plant from Jo O'Connell or Australian Native Plants. Great in an elevated large pot where it can cascade down.
