An evergreen West Australian shrub with a slender stem with a lightly textured crown, narrow leaves and attractive pendant red and green flowers that occur from June to October.
Occurs naturally to a fairly small area around Perth Western Australia that includes the Avon Wheatbelt, Geraldton Sandplains and the Swan Coastal Plain.
Prefers light soil in an open sunny position, drought and frost-resistant.
Seed is best sown in spring or autumn in a temperate climate.
The growing medium should be well draining but should remain damp between watering.
Sow the seed 3-4mm deep. Vermiculite is a good medium to use to cover the surface as it helps retain moisture and controls the temperature. Keep moist but not too wet as the seed may rot. Germination should occur in 21-60 days at 18-22
Pre-treatment of smoke: is not critical to the germination of this species however Diplolaena has proven to be responsive to smoke.
Smoke treatments are simple and can be undertaken either by soaking the seed overnight or by applying to the surface after sowing, both provide good results. Smoke treatments are available by clicking here.
