Hakea ‘Burrendong Beauty’


A low spreading shrub that is absolutely spectacular when in flower. It buds up in autumn and then the deep pink flowers open through winter with contrasting white stamens giving an interesting pin cushion look. A great feature plant in a shrubbery or pot. Best suited to low humidity areas, high levels of humidity can lead to dieback. In humid areas it is best in a large pot where it can get plenty of air flow around the plant and good drainage. A light prune will help create a good habit.
