Fast growing, drought and deer tolerant, evergreen shrub from Australia. Forms a spreading shrub, growing 8 ft. or more tall and wide. The dark green needle-like leaves are a perfect foil for the vivid cherry-red, slender, curved flowers that are custom made for hummingbirds. Blooming begins in late winter and flowers over a long period. Grow in full sun to light shade with good drainage. No summer water is needed after established. Hardy to around 12 degrees. Deer resistant.
