Soft and silky, we bet you can't resist having a little stroke of this shrub! Its soft gentle colouring will fit right into your garden scheme, and although it's a west coast native it's doing well in our Sunshine Coast nursery. If you get humid summers then absolutely free-draining soil is a must to keep it healthy. It's a ripper plant for seaside gardens.We love woolly bush for its soft colour, soft-to-touch foliage, and it makes a great native Christmas tree
