Prickly Hakea

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - GARDENING -

Among the tough­est of all win­ter­flow­er­ing Aus­tralian plants is the Prickly Hakea (H. sericea). This re­mark­able, drought-re­sis­tant shrub grows about 1.5m high and wide, makes a perfect, an­i­mal-proof hedge and fills the gar­den with a sweet honey-like fra­grance from great masses of at­trac­tive, spi­der flow­ers. Can be planted now and thrives in the most im­pov­er­ished soil.
