Adenanthos sericeus ‘Copper Glow’ – Woolly Bush

The soft, silvery foliage is irresistible to touch and feel and in this cultivar, it has a very distinct and beautiful coppery-coloured tinge on the ends of the branches. It forms a beautiful upright shrub that makes an excellent feature or pot plant for gardens in areas of lower humidity in southern Australia. It is also very good in coastal areas but needs very well-drained soil to avoid root rot. Very little, if any, pruning maintenance is required to keep it looking good. The foliage can produce skin sensitivity or allergic reaction in some.
