Hi this looks interesting. How fast does it grow and how invasive. Is it easy to manage

@gardenfiend Myoporum parvifolium grows well in full sun, it layers so one plant will fill a large space if you have time to wait. it will also withstand light foot traffic and is soft and spongy to walk on. The best way to plant a Myoporum lawn would be to buy large quantities in tube stock and then divide it as you need, this will be quite a lot cheaper than laying turf also. It’s grows pretty quick.

@gardenfiend Keep the water up for the first few months and then it should fend for itself and you can lay down on it. http://malleedesign.com.au/myoporum-lawn/

@gardenfiend There are many different varieties of Myoporum parvifolium that you can use as a lawn substitute, there are large leaf forms for a more textured look and a purple form if you want added colour, it flowers in Summer and may attract bees so beware when walking barefoot.
