Best Australian natives for pots & small gardens. The trend towards smaller gardens has inspired the plant lovers in the nursery industry to respond with an ever-increasing range of Australian plants that will delight those who want to attract birds and butterflies and bring a little bit of the bush onto their balconies. From banksias to bottlebrush there are plants that will add colour and texture to provide year round interest.
The totally prostrate habit combined with the texture and colour of the foliage are the outstanding features of this fantastic Western Australian plant. It is best used as a ground cover to spill over embankments or rockeries, or as weeping standard grafted plant. Whilst the small red flowers are not a feature, they do attract various nectar feeding birds such as honey eaters and spinebills which are always a welcome addition to a garden. The bronze tinge to the new foliage is absolutely gorgeous. It is reasonably maintenance free with just the occasional trim to remove any dead or dying growth being the major requirement.
