Australian native everlasting that is slender in habit with heart-shaped leaves. Attractive Rose-Pink coloured papery flower heads that appear mainly in winter and spring in their native range but sporadic flowering can occur at other times.
A popular plant in cultivation for many years because of its very colourful display, especially in massed plantings. Will often germinate in the garden from seeds produced from the previous season's plantings.
Endemic to South Western Australia extending into South Australia.
Prefers well-drained soil in an open sunny position.
In temperate areas of Australia, it is best to sow from the first winter rains through to late winter. The flower will continue until the rains stop and it becomes too hot and dry.
If sowing directly into the ground sow on the surface and rake very lightly, it is not critical to cover all the seed. The seed should germinate 7-14 days after the first rains.
If sowing in containers:
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
