Cyprus may not have the same climate as they enjoy back home but our Eremophila bushes don't seem to mind. Photos taken this morning.
Cyprus Branch Head. Gardens in a field 40 m above sea level with reasonably fertile clay soil.

Here are a couple more Emu bushes:
Eremophila bignoniiflora x polyclada is a tall shrub with light foliage so it doesn't become too solid a screen.
Eremophila 'Summertime Blue' is apparently also an E. polyclada cross - this time with E. divaricata,

I have posted some pics of Eremophila biserrata in the new thread on low growing shrubs.
This trailing emu-bush is growing in a raised sand-bed and has already gone over a metre from where it started, growing down over the rock edge

Looks lovely Fermi.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

Eremophila glabra 'Kalbarri Gold' is grown as a groundcover but it will climb if there is an obstacle in the way!
