For what the plant lacks in leaf colour, the Conostylis Condicans makes up in wow factor for in their abundant display of a multitude of flower clumps that bloom in the dry seasons when there is very little water. The cotton heads are waterwise, making them ideal for any Australian Garden that is native or desert.


With it's clumping habit, this small plant works well en mass as a flowering ground cover or a single plant as a potted feature.
