Philotheca Profusion / Philotheca myoporoides / Eriostemon myopoides “Profusion Wax Flower” A hardy, showy, compact native shrub with dark green leathery leaves with beautiful scented foliage. Spectacular display when flowering, starting with the mass of pink buds which open out to white star shaped flowers, which are produced from Spring through to Summer. Grown for profuse floral display.
This very tough versatile shrub is suitable for most soil types and tolerates dry periods and frost once established. Will handle full sun or part shade, making it an excellent choice for the low maintenance garden.
Great plant as a feature specimen, informal hedge, lovely floral display scattered through the garden, in decorative pots and can also be used as a cut flower for floral arrangements.
Planting: Cultivate soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from container and place into the hole so that soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill hole firmly and water in even if the soil is moist.
Care: Always ensure regular watering is provided for your new plants. The plants may need watering for around 12 weeks or until they are established depending on time of year and weather conditions once planted.
Good mulching will assist to reduce weeds and maintain moisture levels. Maintain fresh growth, shape and promote dense habit by pruning after main flowering time. Feed in early Spring with a low phosphorus fertiliser.
Using tubestock is a great advantage for planting in your garden as they will establish quickly with the appropriate care.
Plants are supplied as tubestock in 42mm wide pots. Your plant will be established in its pot and ready to plant out.
