Ptilotus is a fun plant that likes a warm, dry climate and brings a soft look to your garden. Ptilotus, a native Australian plant, has a unique appearance due to its 10 centimetre tall plumes of soft pink flowers that rise gracefully above its thick, leathery, silvery-green foliage. 

Ptilotus is an upright growing plant that thrives in sunny gardens and in landscapes with well-drained soil. Use it in the centre or back of the border, where it can contrast with annual flowers in mounding or trailing form. Or add it to container gardens, where its exotic appearance will stand out against other flowers. 

Ptilotus likes full sun, at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sun for best results.

Drought tolerant, Ptilotus rarely needs watering except in the worst drought conditions. Once planted, it can be virtually ignored.

Ptilotus thrives in well-drained soils and even grows well in sandy conditions. If you want to grow this plant and have heavy clay soil, enjoy it in raised beds or amend the soil generously with organic matter to improve drainage.

Prune Ptilotus by removing faded flowers to keep the plant looking its best and to encourage more plumes of new flowers to develop more quickly. Bleaching is not necessary, but it will make the plant more attractive. 

If you grow Ptilotus in average to good soil, you should not need to fertilise, although you can if you want to encourage faster growth. Use any general purpose fertiliser and follow the instructions on the product packaging.
