Availability: In stock
Botanical Name: Hakealaurina
This upright shrub features really distinctive, round, pincushion-like flowers with red, waxy centre and spiky yellow tips. The plants reach 2.5-4m in height and tolerate dryness, cold, heat and neglect. For a truly remarkable floral centrepiece, try combining these blooms with banksia or wattle flowers.
We recommend the use of Wildflower Seed Starter Granules for improved germination rates and speed. These granules provide chemicals normally found in bushfire smoke that stimulate native seed germination.
Plant Height: 5m
How To Grow
Sow in warm areas anytime. In frost prone areas when danger of frost is over. Fill small pots with moist sandy soil and compress. Sow one seed flat on its side in each pot. It is beneficial to add Wildflower Seed Starter granules to soil surface. Cover very lightly with soil mix. Cover the pots with clear polythene – remove when germination starts. Place in warm shady position to germinate fully. Plant out into full sun or dappled shade in shrubbery in well drained sand, gravel or light loam.
When To Plant
All year round except in hottest or coldest weather.
