Unusual in respect that it has juvenile and mature foliage, the one being a striking silvery-blue with opposite round leaves. The other is more typically ‘leaf’ shaped and a more greeny-blue. They unfortunately have the tendency to bend or even fall over because of the vigorous top growth. Regular pruning from the outset and growing as a bush with tame it and keep the attractive juvenile foliage

The silvery-blue foliage, much liked by florists. But watch out for the Koalas !!
