A low growing form of Eremophila glabra, which makes a very easy care and tough ground cover plant. Named for the variation of flower colours, from yellow, orange to red, which contrast with the bright green foliage. Flowers throughout the year, and they are highly attractive to nectar feeding birds. Grows around 20cms high but spreads to a couple of metres wide, with the odd arching branch. Likes full sun, will grow in part shade, but the flower colour will be more red with more sunshine. Drought and frost tolerant.
