A erect sometimes rounded shrub with silvery-grey leaves and attractive flowers.
Purple and violet flowers with yellow centres occur from April to October in its native range.
Widespread throughout Western Australia extending into the Northern Territory and South Australia.
Prefers light sandy soil in a open sunny position. Drought 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
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.
