This is a tall evergreen shrub with heavily scalloped leaves. It will produce silver/maroon and sometimes yellow flower heads. They make excellent cut flowers. The leaves are oblong with scolloped margins about 100mm long and up to 40mm wide. Plants will be drought and frost tolerant once established. Once flowering has finished the cone is left on the plant to reveal a beautiful chequered pattern where the seeds will be contained until burning occures. Height and spread 2m.
