Casuarina 'Cousin It' Prostrate Form
Common Name: Swamp She-Oak
Species: Casuarina glauca 'Cousin It'
Casuarina 'Cousin It' is an amazing prostate cultivar of the normally tree-sized Swamp She-Oak. This cultivar is becoming more and more common in landscape design here in Australia. I like how it forms a dome around the centre of the plant and spreads outwards almost flat to the ground. It looks amazing when planted near and allowed to trail over retaining walls, almost like a green-coloured water spill that has been frozen into place.
