This is a fast growing tough shrub with pink tubular flowers which attract nectar feeding birds. It blooms in autumn and winter. The growth is vigorous and ground covering, height around half a metre and spreads to around 2 metres wide. Best in full sun, drought tolerant once established. ‘Mallee Lipstick’ is a hybrid between Eremophila maculata subsp. brevifolia and eremophila glabra.
