Eremophila racemosa ‘Peaches And Cream’ – Emu Bush

A lovely Eremophila with masses of lemon-gold flowers which open to cream coloured, contrasting nicely with the mid green foliage. It blooms in spring and again in autumn, and will attract nectar loving birds. It grows to around a metre and a half tall and wide. Needs a well drained soil, will grow in full sun to part shade. Very drought tolerant, but dislikes excess humidity which can shorten the life of the plant.
