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.
