Native large shrub or small tree, unmistakeable in full flower. Ideal for landscaping, large pots and native or formal gardens. Birds like lorikeets love the nectar-rich blossom. Glossy bronze new leaves.
DESCRIPTION: Outstanding feature tree for smaller gardens and containers. Golden yellow flower clusters in spring-summer which attract native birds and nectar feeding insects. USE IN: Native or mixed gardens as a feature tree. Also suited to informal hedging close to the home as the roots are non invasive. PLANTING: Plant in a full sun position in well drained soil for best flower display. Tolerates cooler climates but will develop more slowly. Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. CARE: Prune after flowering to encourage heavier flowering and more dense growth habit. Apply a slow release native fertiliser following pruning. Tolerates dry conditions once established. Protect from frost. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 3-4m x 2m. YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tube-stock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
