Also known as Flannel flower, this is a truly under rated shrub and if you are into drying flowers as well as having something to cut in late winter for the vase or for floral work then this is just what you need. A rounded shrub that grows reasonably vigorously that produces the most beautiful creamy, buff feathery flowers that smothers the bush and are as the name suggests like flannel - soft and furry and definitely a flower arranger's dream
The plants have year round interest with narrow pale green foliage and the new shoots are rusty coloured. Phylica plumosa enjoys well drained soils which are not too dry and lots of sunshine.
These plants can tolerate a wide range of conditions and are also great if to grow in coastal area. Winter foraging bees will appreciate these flowers too. Plant in a well drained sunny position. If you are using your flowers for cutting this will help to retain the shape of the plant. Loved by winter foraging bees.
Phylica is tolerant of mild frosts so is relatively hardy but protection is required in very cold climates.
