Dracophyllum secundum

A small shrub from moist but well drained spots in part shade in NSW, on the coast and inland around the Blue Mountains. It particularly likes hugging sandstone rocks where there is a constant trickle of moisture. An uncommon plant in gardens due to the difficulty in propagating plants and the specific needs. It blooms in winter and spring and attracts honey eating birds to the pretty spikes of flowers. Grows to under a metre tall.
