Pimelea Ferruginea | Growing + Care Guide Australia

For the month of February I will be taking a look at 4 different varieties of the Australian Native Plant called the Pimelea.

Pimelea’s are extremely beautiful plants that can mostly be grown in cool and temperate climate zones.

Sadly Pimelea’s struggle in tropical and sub-tropical climates but they are so amazingly beautiful that I am featuring them during this month of February.

Where and How To Grow Pimelea Ferruginea

Pimelea ferruginea prefers a coastal climate but they have been known to succeed inland. What gives the Pimelea its beauty is the way the flowers cluster together at the end of the stem.

The individual flowers themselves are quite small but because they cluster together (like the Hydrangea) they make a much larger statement and really stand out against the dark green foliage.

Pimelea ferruginea is only a small shrub growing about 1m high and between 1 and 2 metre’s wide. Pimelea ferruginea prefers a well draining soil and a sunny to part shade position.

The best way to reproduce Pimelea ferruginea is from cuttings with the best cuttings being current season growth.

People have successfully propagated Pimelea ferriuginea from seeds but this is a highly unreliable process for this variety. Why not consider adding a Pimelea ferruginea to your garden.
