Eremophila glabra ‘Mingenew Gold’ (Outback Sunrise Emu)

Eremophila glabra 'Mingenew Gold'
Outback Sunrise Emu

How exciting to find an evergreen, durable ground cover to add to our plant palette! Outback Sunrise is native to Australia, but thrives in our extreme Phoenix heat. It has proven itself in roadway plantings in the master-planned community of Verrado, on the outskirts of Phoenix. Outback Sunrise withstands full sun and reflected heat, but will also perform well in light shade. It is very drought tolerant once established, and it grows quickly. Masses of tubular yellow flowers cover the plant through the spring.
