A beautiful small shrub growing to a metre high, it bears masses of pink starry flowers in winter and spring. It needs a well drained and moist soil for best performance. A light coverage of mulch or a few rocks to keep the root zone cool is beneficial. Also good for container growing, so it can be moved to the best place when it is in flower. Prune lightly after flowering to encourage a more dense habit, and give it a handful of a good native fertiliser in spring. The flowers are fragrant and make great cut flowers.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
