Fern-like foliage in shades of purple. This much sough-after small tree has delicate, purple, fern-like leaves, and fluffy yellow flowers over the winter and spring. It should be planted only in milder parts of the country (ie near the coast) in a sheltered spot in full sun, or even in a greenhouse or unheated conservatory. Plants which are in damp or water-logged soil or in a cold area will not thrive and eventually die. Can be trimmed lightly in late spring to maintain a dense shape. Plant in well-drained soil. The branches may be trimmed in mid summer to keep a more compact crown. Irish grown plants, 120cm tall plants in a 5L container.
