Eremophila hybrid ‘Pink Pantha’

An attractive shrub with spectacular flowering displays, as the deep pink flowers contrast beautifully with the silvery grey foliage. It has orange-yellow buds, and main flowering is from August through to November. Very attractive to nectar feeding birds. It responds well to pruning, which creates a more dense habit and more abundant flowering. Attractive even when not flowering, as the silver foliage brings brightness to the garden. Drought tolerant, it likes a well drained soil and a sunny spot, also appreciates good air movement around the plant. A good garden and landscaping plant, also suitable for container planting. ‘Pink Pantha’ is said to be a hybrid of E. glabra and E. nivea.
