(This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List.)
A native of the Great Victoria Desert, this attractive mallee only grows to a maximum height of 4 metres with an equal spread. It is not well known in cultivation because of its remote location and difficulty in collecting seed. The Mallees are multi-stemmed with smooth stems clad in dark and light grey over pinkish-grey bark. The leaves are linear, dull, grey-green and the buds are pendulous and red. The flowers are a deep reddish-pink as soon as the bud releases its cap (operculum). The flowers are known to range from white to delicate shades of pink to a rich deep red. Plants have been known to flower at just 20cm tall.
Preferring sandy, well-drained soils in an open, sunny position, it is drought and dry cold hardy.
Offered is a packet of 200 seeds (includes chaff) along with Grownotes to assist you in their propagation.
All seed is posted in bubble wrap protection.
