A large to medium, evergreen shrub that is the floral emblem of NSW, the Waratah produces an abundance of bright red or pink flowers throughout spring. 

It is a great feature shrub for rockeries or general garden beds. It is also suitable for a large container and is a great cut flower. Corroboree Waratah has also been known to grow well in coastal areas.

Best planted in a well drained soil:  Sandy, Loamy, Sandy loam, and Potting mix can be used. Feed with a good native fertiliser in spring and water well afterwards to prevent leaf burn. Prune heavily and remove spent flowers after flowering to maintain shape of plant.
