Beaufortia squarrosa ‘Orange’ – Sand Bottlebrush

The bold orange bottlebrush flowers combine with interesting foliage on a small spreading shrub are the outstanding features of this Western Australian gem. Use it as a feature plant in areas that gets lots of sun and good drainage although it will still flower well under light shade. Trim back behind the spent flowers at the end of spring.
