These are displayed en masse both outside and inside the canopy of soft grey green leaves, proving irresistible to honey-eating birds. Great feature or pot plant. Good for sun to part shade, acid to alkaline soils. Likes good drainage, raised garden beds work very well. Feed with a good native fertiliser in spring.

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.
