Melaleuca fulgens 'Apricot' - apricot honey myrtle, scarlet honey myrtle

APPEARANCE : Hardy native shrub with fine, slender leaves along open branching stems; and fluffy cylinders of vibrant coral-orange flowers like a bottlebrush, produced from spring often until winter. 'Fulgens' means brightly shining, as the flowers are. Originates in southern WA but seems happy in eastern coastal locations too.
USE FOR : Native gardens and coastal plantings as a low hedge or feature shrub.
PLANTING : Tolerates most soil types and a range of planting conditions, even occasional wet feet. Plant in full sun to encourage flowering and keep plants dense and bushy. Tolerates light overnight frost and moderate drought once established. 
CARE : Mulch and water well after planting. Protect young plants from drying winds and frost. Lightly prune after flowering to shape the plant, and apply slow release fertiliser afterwards.
HEIGHT & WIDTH : 1.5 m H x 1 - 2 m W.
YOUR PLANTS : These plants are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide. You can see an example in the image gallery
