SpecificationsCommonly known as the Silver Woolly Bush, Adenanthos sericeus 'Silver Streak' is covered in fine silver/green foliage making it appear and feel soft. This West Australian Native produces small red flowers in spring to autumn, however most find the foliage more of a feature in comparison. Adenanthos sericeus 'Silver Streak' is ideal for contrast in gardens or landscapes. Its soft foliage will create depth and variation as it is so unique. It can also be used as a hedge or specimen shrub, and also makes a suitable alternative to a Christmas Tree if grown in a pot or container. This plant prefers to be situated in areas exposed of full and partial sun, with free draining soils. Being native, Adenanthos sericeus 'Silver Streak' is incredibly hardy and drought tolerant, surviving on very little water once established. Prune as desired to create shape and maintain size. Adenanthos sericeus 'Silver Streak' can grow to a height of 3 metres and a width of 2.5 metres if left unpruned.
