Verticordia Mitchelliana | Growing and Care Guide Australia

Last week I reviewed the Verticordia monadelpha, this week I will be discussing another Verticordia variety, the mitchelliana or Rapier Feather Flower.

Verticordia Mitchelliana Features

Genus: Verticordia
Species: mitchelliana
Common Name: Rapier Feather Flower
Flower Colour: Red
Foliage Colour: Grey
Growth Habit: Shrub to 1m
Flowering: Spring, Summer

Verticordia mitchelliana is a low spreading shrub that will grow to about 1 metre high and about 1-2 metres wide

This variety is definitely one of my favourite varieties of Verticordia simply because the flower is such a wonderful and vibrant red colour. The Verticordia mitchelliana is a low spreading shrub that will grow to about 1 metre high and about 1-2 metres wide.

The mitchelliana prefers positions that receive full sun but can handle periods of part or filtered shade. This variety of Verticordia can be good to plant as a hedge. 

Planting Verticordia Mitchelliana

As mentioned above, it grows to about 1 metre high which can be a good height for a hedge and because it spreads wide, you only need to plant 3-4 of the variety to get a good sized hedge.

Perhaps consider planting a variety of Verticordia with similar growth patterns (or perhaps a mixed variety of growth patterns) to make your hedge look extra especially good.
