Eremophila glabra ‘Burgundy’ – Emu Bush

A great ground cover Eremophila that flowers all winter with tubular red-brown blooms. The foliage is naturally dense with small, grey green leaves, and pruning after flowering will enhance this even more. It likes a sunny spot, well drained soil and low humidity. Great for coastal gardens. This is a useful plant for habitat gardens as it provides food for nectar eaters in winter when flowers are scarce.
