Gascoyne Mulla Mulla
Characteristics: Perennial shrub to 1 metre
Seeds per packet: Approx 10 with fluff included
An attractive spreading shrub to 1 metres with pink/purple white flowers that occur from July to November in its native range.
The wonderful feathery flower heads are suitable for use as cut flowers. Well suited to hot dry conditions this hardy plant is also suited to most situations including containers.
Endemic to the drier regions of Western Australia including Carnarvon, Gascoyne, Geraldton Sandplains, Murchison and Yalgoo.
Adaptable to most soil types but prefers an open sunny position, drought and frost resistant.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in 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 for this species.
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.
