Guichenotia ledifolia

A small attractive shrub around a metre high and wide, a good waterwise plant as it naturally occurs in low rainfall areas of Western Australia. It has nodding pink to mauve flowers from mid winter through most of spring, and narrow leaves covered in fine blue grey downy hair. The calyx is the showy part of the flower, with the true petals less significant. Best in a well drained soil, likes dappled shade to sunny positions. Prune after flowering to create a more dense growth habit. Naturally occurs on limestone soils in coastal Western Australia.
