'Grey Cottonhead' seeds

Conostylis candicans

  • Strappy grey foliage
  • Bright yellow flowers
  • Long flowering period

A clumping perennial with strappy grey grass-like leaves and clusters of yellow flower heads growing from the base of the plant from winter to summer. A relative of Kangaroo Paws, it has a compact habit and grows from an underground rhizome. Grow in containers, in a native garden or plant as a border, also suitable for mass planting as a groundcover. Tolerates windy and coastal conditions. Also known as 'Cotton Heads'.


Note: Seeds of many native plants are dormant and will not germinate until ideal environmental conditions are met. Follow instructions for pre-treatment and sowing, and be patient; some wild harvested seeds can take much longer to germinate than expected.
