Preferred Soil:

Prefers well-drained soils. Tolerates a range of moisture levels but does not thrive in waterlogged conditions.

Highly regarded for its iconic, large cylindrical flower spikes and rugged, serrated leaves. This hardy, drought-tolerant plant is excellent for supporting local wildlife, including birds and pollinators, and adds a unique, sculptural element to the garden.

Care Considerations:

Low to moderate watering needs, relatively drought-tolerant once established. Apply organic mulch to help retain moisture and suppress weeds. A light feeding with a low-phosphorus native fertiliser can be applied if required. Minimal pruning is required, mainly to shape and removed dead/damaged branches.
