Attractive small low growing plant (almost a tall ground cover) which has got to be one of the best native plants for native bees. The flowers in our own garden have attracted up to 4 species observed in only a few minutes. Very easy to care for and if established well can naturalise in your garden.


Grows well in moist well draining positions. Try and allow a square metre or more for these plants as they provide important food sources for native bees. The plant forms tuberous like roots from which it can re sprout during the dry times, but we suggest adequate watering until established. The plant grows well in a position of morning sun and afternoon shade. Can grow in shadier conditions though you will see less flowers/less native bees.
