Scaevola_Mauve _Mist.jpg (62482 bytes)Scaevola Mauve Mist: is a member of the Goodeniaceae family and is a cultivar of Scaevola albida. Species in this genus are usually known as Fan Flowers. The name refers to the flower shape.

“Mauve Mist” is a dense, suckering ground cover that forms a mat that may reach a diameter of one metre. The small fleshy leaves are up to two centimetres long, crowded and deep green. Purplish-mauve, fan-shaped flowers are two centimetres across and are both profuse and conspicuous. Plants will carry blooms for many months.

“Mauve Mist” has proved to be very hardy, long lived and free flowering. The suckering growth habit helps to increase the ground covering density. This is an ideal plant for rockeries and native cottage gardens.

We have found that all Scaevolas, including this cultivar, propagate rapidly from cuttings.
