Myoporum parvifolium, or Creeping Boobialla, is a versatile and hardy ground cover native to Australia. It forms a dense mat of small, narrow leaves and produces clusters of white flowers during the warmer months. This low-maintenance plant is drought-tolerant and thrives in full sun to partial shade. It is commonly used as a ground cover on slopes, in rock gardens, or as a border plant. Myoporum parvifolium adds beauty to landscapes with its attractive foliage and delicate flowers, while also providing functional ground cover and erosion control. Myoporum is a great choice for bank stabilisation, is fire retardant and for coastal sites. A fine leaf form and a purple leaf form are also available. Grows to approx. 15-30cm H x 1-2m W.
