A prolific flowering bush plant. Strappy leaves and with red to pinkish-red flowers that are placed on on the top of long stalks, these Australian Natives stand out against the greenery of any kind of Australian Garden. Like all Australian Natives, these plants are water-wise and do not need excessive watering unless it is after fertilization. Plant them as a groundcover plant or in medium-sized pots. The stalk and flowers can also be used as cut floral arrangements.
