Adenanthos sericeus 'Silver Streak'

Form Shrub
Mature Size 2 x 1.5m
Family Proteaceae
Silver Woolly Bush

Known commonly as 'Woolly Bush', this Australian shrub-like tree is covered in fine, ferny silver grey/green foliage giving it a 'soft' appearance and soft to the touch. A great tree with brilliant red small flowers in amongst the foliage.

This is an attractive native shrub-like tree used for contrast in the landscape, as a specimen tree or can be hedged for a unique soft affect. Tip pruning gives the bush a great shape although pruning is not necessary. Great native alternative to a xmas tree when grown in a pot.

Very drought tolerant and low maintenance as it requires very little water. Prefers dry summers rather then a humid climate.
