Pimelea ferruginea ‘Pink Solitaire’ – Rice Flower

Masses of bright pink pom pom like flower heads complement the glossy dark green foliage on a compact dwarf shrub. Use it as a feature plant for the front of a sunny shrubbery or rockery or as a low growing pot plant. It is perfectly suited to windy and salty conditions near the ocean. Trim back behind the spent flowers at the end of spring.
