Originating from Australia
Olive green elliptical and aromatic leaves are borne on open and elegant branching habit. It forms a distinctive shrub that makes the perfect backdrop for its clear white and red tipped flowers, loved by all pollinators. Hardy and tough with a unique flower colour amongst bottlebrushes, it is useful amongst taller architectural plants, especially in Mediterranean and coastal gardens. A rare variety, producing its main display of flowers in spring with later sporadic flowering in late summer.
Hardy and easy to grow, great in pots, in full sun and in any soil.
Height and spread after 5 – 10 years 1.5m x 1.5m.
