Adenanthos sericeus ‘Silver Streak’ – Woolly Bush

Adenanthos ‘Silver Streak’ is an upright plant to 3 metres tall and wide, with silky, silvery foliage. The flowers are red and bird attracting, but insignificant, and it is the colour and texture of the foliage that is the feature. It can be used in cut flower arrangements, and a potted plant makes a lovely Australian native Christmas tree. A good plant for coastal sites, as it withstands salt winds. A useful screen plant as it is a tall and upright form of woolly bush. Pruning the tips of the plant will help it to flourish in spring and summer and will give it an attractive shape. Feed in spring with low phosphorus fertiliser. Likes well drained soil, and is drought and frost tolerant once established.
