That's a new one to me. I like the felty flowers and the colour.

Thanks very much Anget, It is one of these Australian plants which are growing " on the edge" here but I heard people can grow them in certain parts of UK successfully.
I had a red one as well but it did not come back this year.

Did you buy the plants or start them from seed? I am wondering because I have the seeds and don't know if they need smoke treatment like many Australian plants require.

Hi Wylie, These were bought as plants and because we cannot grow very many Australian plants in our climate, I have no idea how to grow them from seed. But you've spiked my interest and I searched the internet for more info. Seems like you will have better germination rate using smoke (as a general rule) Good luck with it.
