    Product Specifications: Cape Snowbush is a bushy evergreen shrub of up to 1 metre tall. The plant consists of thin, silvery grey leaves, which smells slightly like Eucalyptus when crushed. The leaves are arranged in tufts along the branches. Special features include the grey leaf colour which reflects sunlight and thereby reduces leaf temperature.

    The minute, silvery hairs covering the leaves trap moisture and thus reduce transpiration. The small, needle-shaped leaves are another adaptation that limits water loss. Flowering times vary, but the best displays are in winter when the whole shrub is covered in small, white flowers. Typical of the family Asteraceae, the flowers are a composition of 2-3 showy white ray florets on the outside and purple disc florets in the centre.
