Garden Armour is a superior groundcover
that grows as living mulch, tolerating extremely low rainfall
and high temperatures. Profuse dainty white star shaped flowers
appear during summer. Garden Armour was originally selected from
Myoporum parvifolium plants growing along the cliffs of the Murray
River South Australia by local bush safari operator and author
Rex Ellis. This attractive drought tolerant ground cover is the
perfect choice to protect and defend your garden and landscape
from weeds. Garden Armour's natural succulent like foliage reduces
reflective and radiant heat.
Garden Armour's growth habit is naturally prostrate and grows
to approximately 0.1 meters in height and radiates to a width
of 0.5 - 0.75 meters. Garden Armour grows best in full sun in
open areas and is adaptable to most well drained soils. This ground
cover is very hardy and requires little maintenance.
Myoporum parvifolium of similar varieties also marketed in the
plant industry are Myoporum Yareena and Myoporum Lime Carpet .
