Agonis 'Fairy Foliage'

ORIGIN: A form of Agonis flexuosa first noticed growing in a container in a private garden in the Busselton area of Western Australia. It is a tall shrub which is known to reach a height of about 4m in 10 years. Cultivar received by the Authority: 12 March 1976. Applicant: Wanneroo Wildflower Nursery.

DIAGNOSIS: The distinguishing feature which makes this plant different from the normal form is that the leaves are much more crowded. Individual leaf lamina are generally narrower than normal, the lamina always ending a third to a half the way along the leaf. The remainder of the leaf is reduced to a thread-like extension of the mid-rib.

NOTE: Propagation is by cutting.
