This is a very showy plant from Western Australia that performs well in both dry or moist conditions and its versatility in this regard is perhaps its most useful feature. It grows into a small shrub around two to three metres high and is ideal as a feature plant in garden beds and can be used as a cut flower, which serves to prune the plant at the same time. The bottlebrush flowers are nectar rich, and are produced in summer and autumn. Good in sun or dappled shade. Feed with a good native fertiliser in spring. Tolerant of moderate frosts.
