Acmena Moonlight Flame
Every landscape needs a touch of lightness and some plants do it without even flowering. In fact, you’d never even miss it with Acmena Moonlight Flame. The smooth soft pale green & lemon foliage of this small shrub catches the eye, but even more so when it’s flushed with sunsetty-pink new tips that cover the plant for many weeks in spring. Any small garden space that needs a lift will be perfect, or use it to create a border or low hedge along a pathway. It only needs minimal trimming to keep it neat. Sun or shade and good drainage, cool temperate to sub tropical climates, and some protection from frosts or strong coastal winds are all that’s required. It’s one of those easy going plants that make you so glad you chose it.
