    On a quick trip to Cape Town in 2017 we first noticed this compact, dwarf Natal Plum growing in several public landscape installations. Firstly, it was used to grow as a dense ground cover and secondly, it was grown as a low hedge. Carissa macrocarpa 'Green Carpet' has glossy emerald-green leaves and can be used across a range of landscapes from formal clipped gardens, to a spillover plant in coastal plantings. Tolerant of coastal conditions, poor soils and drought once established. A more robust looking plant will be achieved with regular irrigation. Fragrant white star-like flowers in Spring. Edible bright red fruit follow in Summer. Tolerant of mild frosts only. 30cm high x 150cm wide.

    This small semi-deciduous shrub bears sapphire blue flowers through late Spring, Summer and Autumn. Our hot dry Summer last year didn't deter this tough little plant. An added bonus is the red and orange hues that the leaves take on once the colder nights begin in early Autumn. 60 x 60cm.

    Being fortunate enough to observe this plant on a trip to Kirstenbosch Botanic Gardens in Cape Town, South Africa, we decided to investigate further. Olivier Filippi sings its praises in his drought tolerant gravel garden in the south of France. He reports it to be drought tolerant and beautiful in form. African Boxwood grows slowly to 2m x 75cm, has dark green oval shaped leaves and deep red new growth. We have planted it in our own dry garden to compliment greys and silvers of Mediterranean plants including Phlomis, Rosemary and Dwarf Olives. Clips very well, is long lived and very adaptable.

    At 1.5m high and wide, this compact form of Nerium enables it to be used more extensively in the landscape. The bright green glossy foliage and peachy cream flowers are striking. Heat and low water tolerant. Neriums are not normally a plant we would offer but this one has real appeal. We have to mention like all Neriums, the foliage is harmful if eaten.

    The dwarf Pomegranate is a natural variant of the species occurring throughout the Mediterranean and the Middle East. In our climate we have gained a new respect for this tough and beautiful deciduous plant, as during the current drought we have found the dwarf Pomegranate to be very durable. Our plants in ground have tolerated frost to -5℃ in Winter and 45℃ in Summer, all with limited rainfall (330mm in the last nine months) and two additional deep waterings. The plants are thriving and look fantastic in new Spring growth. We have kept them pruned to 70 x 70cm although they can reach 2m unpruned. The fruits are the size of golf balls and are very tasty. This plant would make a great hedge.
