Gomphrena 'Empress' is an attractive native plant with purple globe shaped flowers on grey green foliage. It performs best as an annual plant, and will flower for most of the year with blooms that last for months on the plant and can be cut for vases. Best in full sun in well drained soil in an open position with good air flow. A light prune every few months will encourage a fresh flush of flowers and tidy the plant. A handful of slow release fertiliser will be appreciated. Attracts butterflies.
