Sizing guide
The leaves are most attractive, colouring during winter with traces of purple-red which accentuate the venation of newer leaves. They are usually rich green, they are arranged nearly opposite in pairs along the stems. The underside of the leaves is distinctively marked with numerous oil glands and when crushing stems or leaves between the fingers a pleasant lemon scent is given off.
Darwinia citriodora 'Prostrate' is a low-growing, spreading form of the Lemon-scented Myrtle, ideal for ground cover or cascading over walls.
To grow it successfully in Australia, plant in well-draining soil in a sunny to partly shaded position. This plant is drought-tolerant once established but benefits from occasional watering, especially during dry periods. Can spread up to 1.5 meters wide and around 30-50 centimeters tall, forming a dense mat of aromatic foliage. Prune lightly after flowering to maintain a compact form and encourage bushy growth. Delightful addition to Australian gardens, providing both fragrance and beauty to the landscape.
