Metrosideros Spring Fire

Description

If you’re looking for a low maintenance flowering shrub that can cope with coastal conditions with salt spray and drought, meet Metrosideros Spring Fire.

With lime green to silvery foliage and red-orange bottlebrush flowers, Spring Fire brightens your garden without any fuss.

This beauty is best used to create hedges or screening. She can be pruned to create a smart formal hedge or left unpruned to create an informal screen. Either way, wildlife adores the safety of her branches and the nectar from those popping spring flowers.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I’m a tough low maintenance hedge or screen with pretty flowers and a haven for wildlife.

  • I grow to: I’ll reach five metres high and two metres wide.

  • Where to place me: I like sun to part sun on my branches.

  • How far to space me: About a metre, but if you have really nosey neighbours, space me 60cms apart for a tighter hedge.

  • Watering conditions: Drought tolerant once established 
  • Soil Conditions: Anywhere really, but I do need free draining soil.

  • My features: My flowers attract birds and bees 

Please note unfortunately due to biosecurity regulations we cannot ship this product to South Australia.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door

Ready to grow

Our growing philosophy isn't rocket science. We simply hold our plants back longer, which means the root systems can establish. That means a better plant for you that's ground ready, achieving faster grow times.
