Pultenaea villosa - hairy bush pea

DESCRIPTION: Compact growing evergreen shrub with a prostrate form. The leaves are fine and covered tiny hairs growing tightly along the stem. Flowers are bi-colour yellow and orange. Also known as 'bacon and egg' plant.
USES: Perfect for dry areas. Plant in rock gardens, seaside and Australian cottage gardens. The flowers are rich in nectar and attract birds.
PLANTING: Plant in a full sun to lightly shaded location in soil which is free draining. Boost with liquid fertiliser following extremely hot or dry conditions.
CARE: Continue to water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Trim lightly after flowering to encourage compact growth and a fresh flush of flowers. Feed with a slow release native fertiliser during spring - Pultenaea can be phosphorus-sensitive so the P ratio of the fertiliser needs to be under 3%.

YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tube-stock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The average size of your plants will be 15 -25 cm including the pot height of 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
