Notes

Notes
ยป A compact herbaceous perennial. It produces an almost constant supply of feathery cerise-tipped flowers on long spikes above the plant. 'Phoenix' is best in full sun but adapts to dappled shade in a wide range of situations and climates. Has a preference for well-drained soil. This low maintenance variety only needs to have the spent flowers removed. Keep lightly moist but not wet. Feed in early Spring or late Summer with controlled release fertilizer. Supplier: Banksia Nursery.
