Plagianthus divaricatus is a deciduous shrub that is indigenous (endemic) to New Zealand. It is naturally found throughout New Zealand in coastal environments, in areas with salt swamp, sandy banks and throughout estuaries. This hardy shrub is now cultivated well inland including alpine situations.

A dense tangled shrub with silvery stems and small elongated green leaves. It grows up to 3m tall. During spring, Plagianthus divaricates develops masses of small, drooping, cream, strong vanilla scented 5 petaled flowers. The flowers are followed by 5mm wide fruit capsules containing small seeds. The seeds are dispersed by floating on water. The seed capsules are attractive to native birds.

Used as a coastal wetland and restoration plant. Also great as a trimmed hedge or low shelter. Hardy shrub.
