“Glow Stick” is a beautiful dwarf hardy Aussie perennial with a most spectacular display of beautiful white candles held atop soft green foliage. It is an adaptable species flowering en masse in spring and summer. The unique “Glow Stick” flowers also have a sweet honey scent that wafts though the garden. Native bees and butterflies find this wonderful plant hard to resist and congregate en masse though out the flowering season.
“Glow Stick” looks great planted out as a border, mass planted in the landscape for swathes of green and lilac or an excellent pot specimen using a premium Australian native potting mix. The beautiful foliage is an added bonus on the occasion that “Glow Stick” is not in flower. “Glow Stick” will naturally sucker forming a dense small shrub.
“Glow Stick” grows and flowers best in a well drained soil in a full sun/part shade position. If the soil is poorly drained a raised garden bed is recommended. “Glow Stick” is a hardy plant tolerating frost. After establishment in the ground “Glow Stick” requires only an occasional extra watering during extended dry periods.
