Mackaya bella

Forest Bell Bush

Truly the belle of the indigenous ball, this graceful shrub or small tree clads itself every spring and early summer in spray upon spray of brilliant, white to mauve, bell-shaped flowers, shown off to great effect by the dark green foliage.   It will light up any light shade or semi-shaded area, is an excellent hedge or screening plant, and creates a stunning display in a pot.
