    Ptilotus Joey
Itís full name is a tongue twister, so we just call it Joey. This 2009 release is native to Australia, and offers exceptional beauty with the side benefit of heat and drought tolerance. Large, 3-4" bottle-brush flower spikes are glistening silver with a darker neon pink colour near the tips. Rare, very few growers cultivate Joey.

  • Garden Performance
    Excellent as an accent in mixed containers or as a compliment in annual flower beds, 'Joey' is a must have in any sunny garden location.  Heat tolerant, but avoid drying out.
