view favourites

An evergreen WA native, this rounded shrub grows to about 2 metres high and wide at maturity, but can be a little sparse at the base.

Highly ornamental with soft silver foliage and purple tubular flowers that bloom from late winter to early summer. An ideal coastal or feature plant for dryer areas, it grows well in pots and prefers full sun. Do not water over the foliage. Responds well if pruned after flowering.

Cultivars include 'Spring Affair' and 'Spring Mist'.
