Eremophila ‘Thundercloud’

Eremophila ‘Thundercloud’ is one of the many cultivars of Eremophila maculata. “Thundercloud” has been available, from nurseries, since about 2010.

Eremophila ‘Thundercloud’ is a small to medium shrub that in our cold climate garden reaches a height of 1.5 metres. The leaves are dark green, about four centimetres long with a succulent feel and slightly aromatic. The large purple flowers have the typical tubular shape, full of nectar and appear from late autumn to early summer. The foliage provides a contrast with the eye-catching flowers. Tip pruning will keep plants dense and blooming bounteously.

There is some evidence that very hard pruning will revitalise plants but this could be a bit of a gamble and a severely pruned specimen may expire.

We are heartened to see the proliferation of Eremophila species, hybrids and cultivars that are appearing in nurseries.
