A very attractive shrub with an elegant habit and bright green foliage and striking orange red tubular flowers occurring in cluster of 7 and appearing in spring.
Native to the south coast region of Western Australia.
Prefers a light to medium well-drained soil in a protected shaded position, drought resistant but frost tender.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-24°C
General note: Seeds of many natives are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
