Adenanthos cuneatus 'Flat Out'
Adenanthos cuneatus ‘Flat Out’
The totally prostrate habit combined with the texture and colour of the foliage are the outstanding features of this fantastic Western Australian plant. It is best used as a ground cover to spill over embankments or rockeries, or as a fabulous weeping standard grafted plant. While its the small red flowers are not a feature, they do attract various nectar feeding birds. New foliage features a beautiful bronze tinge. It is reasonably maintenance free, only requiring an occasional trim to remove any dead or dying growth. It does need a well drained soil and a sunny position for best performance. Tolerant of light frosts.
