Ricinocarpos pinifolius – Wedding Bush

A delightful mid sized bush with attractive soft pine like foliage that showcases the abundant spring flowering, which occurs from August to October. The starry white flowers also make good cut flowers. It naturally occurs in heath and woodland from Queensland to Tasmanian coastal sites, and is a lovely feature plant of Sydney Sandstone bushland. It grows best in sandy soils with good drainage. A light tip prune after flowering will help maintain a good shape.
