Adenanthos x cunninghamii - flower
Adenanthos x cunninghamii (Albany Woollybush) - A sprawling, densely-branched mounding shrub from Western Australia that can grow to 3 to 6 feet tall and spread 4 to 7 feet wide. The soft, silvery, blue-green flattened foliage is dissected into 6 to 8 segments with a nice flush of pink toward the tips. Dark red tubular flowers appear spring through fall but are mostly hidden within the foliage. Plant in full sun in a well-drained soil. Drought tolerant once established. Tolerates medium frost and temperatures to 20-25 degrees F. A nice low plant for a rock garden or the mixed mediterranean climate garden - a very useful plant in beachside conditions.
