Pimelea Ferruginea Magenta Mist – Pink Rice Flower


This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.


A small shrub with small dark green glossy leaves and masses of magenta pink tubular flowers in spring. A great feature plant for rockeries, borders or pots, and for low hedging. Attracts butterflies. Prune old flowers off when they are finished, and this will help to encourage a more dense growth habit. Feed with a good native fertiliser in spring, watering in well afterwards to avoid leaf or root burn.
