Magic Marmalade is a hardy and useful plant for general landscaping and the flowers are great for cut flowers. It has prolific red-bronze buds which open to orange heads which age to lemon, creating a delightful colour effect. It flowers in winter to spring. Frost and drought tolerant once established, and suits sunny to lightly shaded positions. Pruning after each flower flush will encourage further flowering. It is a hybrid of Ozothamnus diotophyllus and Ozothamnus diosmifolius.
