Eremophila aurea * Golden Emu Bush

This tough shrub can take abuse and keep on blooming. Eremophila aurea is hardy with regard to cold and drought. It blooms nonstop or nearly so. The flowers are 2" long and carried well by the bush. I have not tried it in boggy sections of my yard but expect that would jeopardize our relationship. The Golden Emu Bush grows well in full sun or light shade and can get to 6 feet.
