Kartuz Exclusive. This inter-species hybrid is so named because it grows upright and if not topped will quickly grow to an 8 to 10 foot columnar shape. It reminded the hybridizer of a sentry at the edge of the property when it was named. It eventually becomes multi-branched and could almost be considered a small tree rather than a shrub. It's shape at maturity with no pruning is similar to a Crape Myrtle. The original plant is 10 feet tall with three trunks and a 8 to 10 foot spread at the top. Although it has blooms most of the year here in Southern California conditions, it really shines in cool weather when it has massive flushes of its purple upright bell flowers. It can have so many blooms at once that it may require support to keep its shape. Alyogyne 'Sentinel' has a heavy woody trunk and branches that may require staking purely for training to shape. It is a very strong grower with smooth small goose-foot shaped bright green leaves. No special fertilizer needed as is required by some Australian plants. Appreciates regular watering though it is fairly drought tolerant once established. Needs full sun and is able to withstand a short period of mild frost. USDA zones 9 - 10. A truly great specimen plant, graceful and showy and at times even spectacular. (Thompson)
