Myporum parvifolium (Creeping Boobialla) is a low-growing spreading groundcover with attractive white flowers that grows to a diameter of 2 metres but rarely sits more than 20 centimetres above the ground. It is the perfect spillover plant for retaining walls where there is good drainage. Occurring in south-west New South Wales and the Eyre Peninsula on sandy soils, Creeping Boobialla is a tough drought tolerant plant once established. The flowers and fruit of Creeping Boobialla are bee and bird attracting. Like all Myoprums, Creeping Boobialla has a fruit that is edible when fully ripe. It needs to be planted in full sun. Creeping Boobialla is fire retardant so it's a useful plant to grow around the house.
