Isopogon anemonifolius ‘Woorikee 2000’ Drumsticks

A dwarf compact shrub with attractive divided bronze-tipped foliage. Intriguing buds develop in summer, opening to golden mini ‘protea’ flowers in winter and spring, attractive to honeyeaters and butterflies.  Plant in cottage gardens for borders or in mixed plantings; in rock gardens for landscape impact, especially when mass planted; and is a perfect year-round container plant for both foliage and flower interest.
