Eremophila racemosa ‘Peaches And Cream’ – Emu Bush

A lovely Eremophila with masses of lemon-gold flowers which open to cream coloured, contrasting nicely with the mid green foliage. It blooms in spring and again in autumn, and will attract nectar loving birds. It grows to around a metre and a half tall and wide. Needs a well drained soil, will grow in full sun to part shade. Very drought tolerant, but dislikes excess humidity which can shorten the life of the plant.

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.
