An attractive small spreading shrub with small rounded leaves to 2mm and produces a very showy display of small pink or white flowers from May to October and occasionally during summer and autumn.
Occurs naturally in a small number of localised locations in the IBRA Regions of the Avon Wheatbelt and Geraldton Sandplains.
Prefers a well-drained soil in a full sun position. Frost and drought tolerant.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is 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 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 are discarded.
