'Mulla Mulla- Pink' seeds

Ptilotus exaltatus

  • Short-lived perennial to 80cm
  • Feathery mauve flower heads
  • Suited to rockeries or containers

A short-lived perennial to 80cm with dark green rounded leaves and conical, feathery mauve flower heads on tall stems in late winter, spring and early summer. Use in rockeries or containers, or as a cut flower. Requires excellent drainage and prefers a climate with a hot, dry summer. Drought tolerant, frost tolerant once established.

Native to tropical and arid central and western Australia from NSW and Queensland across to northwest Western Australia. Also known as 'Pussy Tails', 'Pink Foxtail', 'Showy Foxtail' and 'Lamb's Tail'.

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.
