it is hardy in USDA Zones 9-11. In cold regions, Mapoon Bush can be grown in pots provided the soil is loose and well-drained. Keep the soil moist, but not soggy. Protection from frost and strong winds is essential.

Mapoon Bush produces white or off-white flowers throughout the year. In regions with warm winter, it can flower all year round. However, it blooms mostly in spring and summer.

Mapoon Bush can be used as a hedge or an accent plant in a garden landscape. This plant is a wonderful addition to any garden, as it brings a hint of nature with its beauty and ornamental foliage.
