Coast Wild Rosemary Overview

Eriocephalus racemosus is not only an ideal low screening plant but will also attract insects, and in turn the insects will encourage the birds to visit your garden too. It provides a bonus of a lovely aromatic scent that will freshen up your garden and disguise bad odours, such as a nearby compost heap. This is a very hardy plant and a plus for every garden as it ‘drinks’ very little water. ZA Distribution: Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, Western Cape.
