Adenanthos sericeus, commonly known as Baby Woolly Bush, is a charming and compact shrub native to Western Australia. It is a member of the Proteaceae family, renowned for its unique foliage and attractive flowers.
Baby Woolly Bush is characterized by its fine, silvery-gray foliage, which has a soft, woolly texture. The leaves are needle-like and closely packed, giving the plant a dense, bushy appearance. In spring and summer, the shrub produces small, red, tubular flowers that are attractive to nectar-feeding birds and insects.
To grow Adenanthos sericeus, plant it in a sunny or partially shaded position in well-draining soil. It is tolerant of dry conditions once established and requires minimal watering. Prune lightly after flowering to maintain a compact shape and promote new growth.
Baby Woolly Bush is an excellent choice for coastal gardens and Mediterranean-style landscapes. Its unique foliage and low-maintenance nature make it a popular choice for Australian gardens. Tolerates most soils. Best in full sun to part shade.
