Bold blooming native, heaps of vibrant pink flower clusters which butterflies go nuts for. The parent plants grow on sand dunes in WA, so free draining soil and not too humid a climate would suit it very well.
DESCRIPTION: Free-flowering native shrub with clusters of vibrant dark pink flowers. 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.

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: 1m H x 1m W.
