Hakea ‘Stockdale Sensation’

This is a compact new type of pincushion hakea that features a spectacular display of flowers through the winter, at a time of year when not much else is flowering. The red and white pincushion flower heads make this a wonderful candidate as a feature shrub in the garden, however, its  dense growth habit also makes it a good plant to use as an informal screen around property boundaries. A good way to prune this plant is to cut the odd stem for indoor decoration when it is in flower as this will also help to maintain a more compact habit.
