Net bush

Calothamnus quadrifidus


About 2 metres tall, soft, smoky leafed, woody shrub. Flowers develop on main stems part-way along instead of at tips and only on one side of the stem. Leaves also grow straight from the stems.


Planted in a local suburban park.


Thanks Leuba for direction. Myrtaceae - not a cultivar - great!

Beautiful flowers, Mark, but I can't help with an ID. Do like the smiley face though.
