Agonis ‘After Dark’
Agonis flexuosa (Jervis Bay Afterdark)
Also known as Willow Myrtle; Willow Peppermint.
A superb new introduction, Agonis Afterdark is a small to medium tree with spectacular foliage, reflecting the colours of the night. The foliage changes with the seasons with bright flushes of claret/purple during Spring and Summer, deepening to a dark burgundy through Winter. In mid-Spring the ends of the branches are festooned with small tea tree like, white flowers contrasting vividly against the dark purple foliage.
Agonis Afterdark is an ideal feature tree or specimen for large tubs. In clay soils provide good drainage and adequate water. Sandy soils will need the addition of compost to help hold moisture. When established, Agonis Afterdark will survive light frosts and strong winds.
Fertilise with a native blend slow release fertiliser twice a year and mulch well. If planting in tubs use a quality potting mix.
