Casuarina Glauca, Shagpile
Shagpile Casuarina is a wonderful addition in any rockery situation. Growth habit is naturally prostrate and grows from 0.1 - 0.3 meters in height and radiates to a width of approximately 1.5 meters. This plant is frost and drought tolerant and is suitable for coastal conditions where salt spray is high, provided the soil structure holds. This is a very hardy prostrate form of Casuarina.
Casuarina Shagpile creates a thick matted cascading ground cover carpet; making this plant very effective to help suppress weeds in areas that require low lying plantings. Shagpile is a useful plant for clay embankments where erosion control is necessary. This plant has attractive grey/green stringy-like foliage with a natural ground hugging growth habit to follow contours. Shagpile is a useful ground cover when planted on mass and is very effective to soften hard structural walls by spilling over the edge. Shagpile is especially excellent to plant out on areas where cuts have been made in the landscape.
