Adenanthos cuneatus Flat Out
The totally prostrate habit combined with the texture and colour of the foliage are the outstanding features of this fantastic Western Australian plant. It is best used as a ground cover to spill over embankments or rockeries. It also makes a fabulous weeping standard grafted plant. Whilst the small red flowers are not a feature, they do attract various nectar feeding birds such as honey eaters and spinebills which are always a welcome addition to a garden. The bronze tinge to the new foliage is absolutely gorgeous. It is reasonably maintenance free with just the occasional trim to remove any dead or dying growth being the major requirement.
