Adenanthos obovatus has wonderful little flowers, flowering mostly in winter and spring

It is a shrub that will grow to about 1 to 1.5m in height and has wonderful little flowers, flowering mostly in winter and spring. Prefers sand or gravel or loam soil and grows best when planted in full sun or part shade environment.
