The Gulftide has a compact, upright form with glossy dark green foliage and prominent spiny margins. White flowers are largely hidden on this plant but you know they are there because of their fragrance. The growth rate is slow to medium but that doesn't stop the Gulftide from being used in borders, screens, hedges, a formal specimen, by walks and entrances....it will also make an excellent barrier planting.
We offer the Gulftide in a 5 gallon container.
