This is a compact everblooming shrub with delightful gold spider flowers. The glossy green leaves are held on arching branches and are set off with flowers for most of the year with a crescendo in late winter to spring. This is a great specimen or container plant to add year round interest to your garden. An extremely hardy plant, frost, heat and drought tolerant. Attractive to wildlife like nectar eating birds and insects. A must have plant for native gardens.
Feed in spring and summer with a good native fertilizer, watering in well afterwards to avoid leaf burn.

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.
