FAIRY FLOSS

As Winter progresses, we are seeing the appearance of the Australian native flowers coming into bloom. The spectacular wattles, the grevilleas, the eucalypts and a host of the smaller ground covers. This is a sure sign that Spring is not too far away.

This is Grevillea leiophylla 'Fairy Floss', an Australian native, small delicate shrub with fine green leaves that has pink spider flowers most of the year, but makes a fine show during late Winter to early Spring. It is bird attracting, drought resistant, fast growing, frost resistant and suitable for shape pruning.
