Our Plant of the Month for August 2021 is Myoporum acuminatum. This is a shrub up to 1.5m growing in sandy or rocky coastal areas and commonly known as Boobialla.
The white flowers appear in clusters most of the year followed by small purple fruit, a treat for many birds.
This is a hardy plant, easily propagated from cuttings, will grow in full sun and can tolerate salt spray. It is common along the Cooloola Coast and on K’gari [Fraser Island].
