HOHERIA sexstylosa ‘Purple Lace’ – Native Purple Lacebark

Product Details

Native Purple Lacebark or Houhere

The attraction is in that flash of colour. The small and jagged leaves are edged with a purple hue which continues to the underside of the leaf, completely covering it. In the breeze, the leaves shimmer and flash their colour, bringing a hit of drama to the day. In Autumn, this contrasts with the soft starry white flowers which prove irresistible to birds. Turning semi-deciduous in cooler locations, it does need some protection from frost and coastal breezes. Grows to 5 x 3 m.

Suitable for: Contrast planting, street tree, home gardens.

Features: Attractive purple-toned foliage.

Botanical Name: HOHERIA sexstylosa Purple Lace
