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.
