Plant life cycle:



Endemic to Eastern parts of Australia including South Eastern Queensland and Northern New South Wales. This species is well-adapted to a variety of habitats within these regions, from coastal regions, rainforest margins, open forests and woodland areas.

Preferred Soil:

Prefers rich moist soils but will tolerate a range of soil types provided they are not water logged

They can provide a tropical flare to the garden with their large, vividly coloured flowers that range from white to pink and yellow, often with a deep red centre. It's not only a stunning visual addition but also plays a significant role in supporting local pollinators, as they are particularly attractive to lorikeets, honeyeaters and butterflies. Valued for its adaptability to various environments, fast growing nature, low maintenance requirements, and the ability to thrive in areas where many other plants might struggle.

Care Considerations:

While relatively drought-tolerant once established, regular watering during extended dry periods can help promote growth and flowering. Pruning can be done yearly to help maintain a desired shape and size, encourage bushier growth, and increase flowering. A slow-release, low-phosphorus fertiliser can be applied prior to flowering to support healthy development.
