Re-stock: in 8-12 weeks
Generously-flowering native, heaps of softest pastel-pink flower clusters which butterflies go loopy for. The parent plants are sometimes found in swampy spots in WA; so a not-too-humid climate would suit it, and try it in soggy garden spots too. We reckon you could plant it in most places and it would give a fair go at growing!

PImelea sylvestris 'Edna Walling' - rice flower

APPEARANCE : Free-flowering native dwarf shrub from WA, with clusters of scented pale pink and white flowers with contrasting bright orange pollen, which are produced mainly in spring and intermittently almost all year round. Leaves are small, arranged geometrically around the stem.
USE IN: Mixed borders, containers and baskets; wildlife gardens - butterflies' probosces are particularly suited to slender tubular flowers like these.
PLANTING : Plant in well drained soil in a sunny position. Frost-free climate unless sheltered when it might come through a light frost.
CARE: Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Once established, plants are low maintenance and drought tolerant, needing only an occasional clip to deadhead and encourage further flowering. Feed with a slow release or liquid fertiliser for native flowers during flowering to keep it blooming.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 40 - 60 cm H x 20 - 30 cm W.
YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants with a healthy young root system and will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
