Isopogon anemonifolius ‘Little Drumsticks’


A small compact upright shrub with intricate lobed foliage. Multitudes of buds develop in summer, opening to golden mini ‘protea’ flowers in winter and spring, attractive to honeyeaters and insect-eating birds such as Scrub and Blue Wrens. Makes a showy display when grouped in small garden beds and rockeries, or mass plant in containers for dramatic effect on a patio or deck, or to decorate a sunny courtyard. Needs good drainage. Drought and frost tolerant, good for coastal gardens.
