Product Description

Ptilotus Seeds

|10 Seeds|



As a breeding breakthrough, this novelty variety is already receiving a lot of attention in horticultural circles. Native to central Australia, Joey is not only attractive, but also exhibits both heat and drought tolerance. Large, 3-4" bottlebrush spikes start out a glistening silver color, then gradually darkens to neon pink near the tips. The feathery spikes crown attractive thick silvery foliage of the 12-18" plants for a pleasing effect. Use Joey as an accent plant in mixed containers, or massed in the garden. Either way, home gardeners will be quite taken with this sun-loving variety.
