Lomatia ferruginea

A member of the Protea family, this attractive and unusual shrub originates in Chile. Young shoots come up bronze and contrast with fernlike green mature foliage. Additional interest is added by yellow and red bunches of blossom. A difficult-to-miss addition to any southern-themed garden!

Part Shade / Sun


In Mediterranean-themed shrubberies in coastal climates, or in containers.


In full sun, protected from cold winds, in very well-drained, acid soil. Remove the plant from its container and thoroughly soak the root ball. Place the plant (not too deeply) in a hole with a mixture of loose soil, sandtype material and topsoil around the root-ball, gently tamping the earth. Water in.


Prune after flowering to keep a compact form. Fertiliser is not necessary (for container plantings, apply a specialised Protea fertiliser). If planted, mulching is preferable to mechanical weeding.
