Leptospermum Cardwell. Weeping evergreen shrub, almost completely covered with masses of white flowers in spring. Height 2m, width 2m, full sun/part shade. Prune after flowering to maintain compact growth. Mulch well.
Ptilotus nobilis; flowers winter through to summer; needs open sunny position, excellent drainage & a dry summer; not particularly reliable. (cultivar "Joey" seems to be flowering quite happily on Hobart's eastern shore)
