A tough and easy care medium sized shrub, with dense green foliage with a grey tinge, and beautiful contrasting bright pink flowers from mid winter through to summer, with spot flowering for the rest of the time. Bird attracting, and the mid winter flowering is especially useful when nectar is scarce. It tolerates drought and heavy frost, likes well drained soil. Prune after the main flowering to encourage an even more dense growth habit. It is a cross between two species, Eremophila calorhabdos and E. splendens.
