Epacris longiflora x reclinata ‘Pan Pipes’ – Fuchsia Heath

An attractive small shrub with long lasting displays of beautiful white tipped rose pink bell flowers from autumn through to spring, and is great for brightening the garden in winter which is it’s peak flowering time. Good for small honey eating birds and for cut flowers. New foliage growth is a nice contrasting orange-pink. Best in well drained slightly acid sandy soils with regular moisture, part shade but will grow in sunny spots too. Great for container growing. Tip prune after flowering and feed with a good native fertiliser.
