This is one of the most eye-catching wildflowers in the Western Australian flora. It is a prostrate herbaceous plant that comes up in profusion after bushfires in areas such as Mullewa several hours drive to the north east of Perth. It is occassionally offered for sale in the nursery industry but has proven difficult to keep going in cultivation, particularly in the more humid areas of eastern Australia. If you are going to attempt to grow it than it is best done in a small to medium sized pot or hanging basket, ensuring you use a freely draining mix. Give it a very light trim after flowering to maintain its shape.
