The masses of rose-pink ball-shaped flower heads on a compact shrub with interesting divided foliage are the outstanding features of this tough Australian shrub. Use it as a feature plant for gardens in areas with low summer rainfall. Ensure it receives good drainage and low phosphorus native fertiliser for best results and give it a light trim after flowering finishes 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.
