A medium sized compact shrub with gorgeous foliage, older growth is blue-grey in colour with newer growth having warm red-purple tones that becomes more prolific in warmer months. Flowers are on show in winter with the stamen and surrounding area producing a yellow hue.
Prefers a full sun to part shade position, if planted in a shaded position they will lose their vivid colour. Grows best in an acidic soil though is suited to most soil types as long as it has good drainage. Once established they are quite hardy and tolerant of dry periods. Prune in late spring to maintain shape.
Ideal for low maintenance and low water usage gardens. Can be used for borders or low hedging. Looks fantastic planted with Australian natives such as Banksia, Westringia and Callistemon.
