Description

Adenanthos sericeus – Albany Woolly Bush is an attractive, trendy Australian native shrub with softgreen silvery foliage and red flowers in spring. The species will reacharound 4m in height if not pruned, taller in some conditions, however
Adenanthos do take to being pruned. Also known as ‘Silver Streak’.

They do grow naturally to a nice shape andare well suited to growing in containers. A sunny position and a welldrained soil are essential.

Well suited as a feature new the back of the garden border, the thick growth make it a good screening plants. Flowers are attractive, but held beneath the foliage so really not a significant feature. The soft foliage and attractive nature of Adenanthos sericeus make it a useful plant in many areas. Grown simply in a native garden, or in the mixed border it adds texture and a soft look. As a low to medium hedge, with a difference, or grown in a container and shaped by tip pruning

Grow in sun to part shade, water well until established, but ensure that drainage is good as Adenanthos do not like damp conditions. Consider its natural environment of Southern Western Australia for an idea of growing conditions. Fertilize using a native plant food.

A few different thoughts on this, tip pruning can be carried out to maintain a bushy habit and this is best carried out in spring after flowering. Damaged foliage can be trimmed back at any time. HOWEVER, we have been growing this for a few years, and our friendly canine companion has managed to ‘flatten’ it a few times, we were forced to hard prune to remove the damage, and it has thrived.

The Woolly Bush, Adenanthos sericeus is a low maintenance, drought tolerant landscaping plant
