The so-called native holly, or holly-leaved fuchsia, is an Australian native plant member of the Acanthaceae family. This evergreen shrub is found only in the wild in an area near Mackay in North Queensland, in fairly dry rainforest areas or along creek banks. It grows 3-5 m in height. In spring and early summer, clusters of bright scarlet, tubular flowers appear along the stems amongst the glossy, toothed leaves. The blooms attract nectar-feeding native birds. It is a slow growing plant but well worth the wait.

Care Considerations:

Pruning after flowering will help keep the shrub compact
