Prostanthera walteri

20th October 2010

An Australian shrub from New South Wales and Victoria. I delight in the pale grey-blue flowers (this picture doesn't capture the colour) but the plant doesn't grow for me. I have killed it a couple of times and am prepared for the killing spree to continue.
I would like to think that it simply isn't hardy enough to survive winter without heat, unfortunately I have also killed it in mid summer. The nursery I buy it from assures me that it is perfectly simple to grow.
