Joey Improved Ptilotus Plants

Joey Improved Ptilotus, also known as Mulla Mulla, has lovely silver leaves and upright bottle-brush pink spires. It loves dry, rocky, sandy, or sloped soil - which makes it perfect for some otherwise tricky planting areas.

This native Australian produces delightful pink conical flowers that have personality and panache. Both heat and drought tolerant, this flower is as tough as it is playful and has the benefit of being named after a baby kangaroo.

Includes three young plants, grown in 2.5" diameter pots.

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water
Where to Plant Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, in well draining soil
When to Plant Plant outside in the spring, After your last frost. Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon
When to Expect Blooms All summer
Care Instructions Water regularly until established, then give it an extra drink during dry spells. Pick off spent plumes to enourage more
Extra Credit Blooms look lovely in dried bouquets
