Casuarina ‘Cousin It’ has a naturally prostrate form that has a trailing/cascading habit. Cousin It is a great choice to plant on embankments, rocky slopes and retaining walls. It not only beautifies a setting and complements many garden styles, it’s an excellent weed suppressing plant and a natural mulch that minimises soil erosion too. If something unsightly gets in its way, ‘It‘ will spread over it. We think Cousin It is one of the most useful ground covers you will ever use. Performs best in compost-enriched, free-draining soil in a full or part-sun location however this plant is tolerant of a range of poorer quality, but, still, free-draining soils. Will grow in a wide range of climates from cool to sub-tropical. Successive light frosts will brown the foliage and make the plant look a bit ’ratty’ but new growth will emerge in spring and restore the plant’s good looks. Mulching is recommended. Needs moist soil, however, will normally perform quite well on natural rainfall without much supplementary watering as the pictures below demonstrate. Just trim to desired shape occasionally. Will tolerate a hard cut if required.
