A lovely little shrub that is very waterwise, hardy and decorative. It gives a prolific display of deep pink flower buds in winter which gradually fade to light pink as the buds mature and open to a lemon colour in spring. The blooms are great for cut flowers, pick in bud for the best performance. The plant grows to around a metre high, and is useful for many different situations. Likes sun to part shade, and does well in all states of Australia. Tolerates light frost and drought once established. A light prune after flowering is beneficial.
