Eremophila aurea * Golden Emu Bush

Eremophila aurea is a tough shrub that can take abuse and keep on blooming. The Golden Emu Bush is a good choice for an active garden or parkway. Eremophila aurea is hardy with regard to cold and drought. The Golden Emu Bush blooms nonstop or nearly so. The flowers are 2" long and carried well by the bush. I have not tried Eremophila aurea 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.
