Plant Details

An excellent and unusual ground cover plant from New Zealand and rarely seen here. Small, white, scented flowers in summer. 

This hardy little plant is excellent and all but unknown in the UK. Useful for underplanting large containers or as ground cover. It is now even being used as an alternative to grass in some countries.

Its vibrant, light green colour makes an expanse of Selliera a beautiful sight; one which is further enhanced by the appearance of its copiously-produced white flowers in summer.

Can cope with coastal positions well and seems to be fine in wet or very dry soil, and anything in between.

I have no idea how it came to be known as 'bonking grass', but if you know, please get in touch!

Height: 10cm 

Common name(s): Bonking Grass; Victorian Swampweed; Tongue Plant.

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
