Commonly known by the name spearwood Kunzea glabrescens is a shrub viable in height growing between 1.5 and 4 metres that produce creamy-white or yellow flowers that occur during October and November.
Kunzea glabrescens produces flowers similar to those of Kunzea ericifolia but has differently shaped bracteoles.
Occurs naturally in the southwest of Western Australia.
Prefers light to medium well-drained soil in an open sunny position, drought and frost resistant.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn in temperate climates, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-22°C
General note: Seeds of many natives are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
Generally best sown in spring or autumn avoiding the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-22°C
Sow the seed on the surface of a porous seed-raising mix and sprinkle a very light covering of the seed-raising mix over the seed. Do not bury the seed deeply.
Seeds generally sprout well when sowed in seed-raising mixes, however, the seedlings may be susceptible to a disease called "damping off". To reduce the risk of this disease, it is recommended to keep the seeds moist but not overwatered. The germination process should take around 14 to 30 days, depending on the species of plant.
