Verticordia grandis – Featherflower

A beautiful Western Australian shrub, with bright red flowers mainly in spring and summer, highly prized as cut flowers. The foliage is also attractive, with small leaves and blue green colouring. It can be touchy in areas of high humidity, but grafted forms are well worth a try. Naturally growing on sandy soils, it needs good drainage and ideally some space around it for good air flow.
