Pimelea rosea ‘Deep Dream’ – Rice Flower

A beautiful small shrub with small light green leaves and masses of purple-pink tubular flowers in spring. A great feature plant for rockeries, borders or pots, and does best in a well drained soil and a sunny spot. Attracts butterflies. Feed with a good native fertilizer in early spring, watering in afterwards to avoid leaf or root burning. Trim off flowers after they die back, which also helps to encourage a dense habit. If left untrimmed, Deep Dream has a naturally tidy habit.
