Agathosma ovata is very hardy evergreen, small shrub with small dainty, leathery, leaves.
It bears profuse sprays of star-shaped, pale pink to white flowers that almost obscure the leaves at their peak flowering time in winter, although they have a few flowers throughout the year.
They attract a myriad of insects to the garden. The small, leathery leaves are aromatic and when crushed have a lovely citrus scent.
It requires a sun to semi-shade position in well-drained, compost rich soil and responds well to pruning. Makes a good cut flower and container plant. An important medicinal plant.
