Eremophila maculata ‘Valentine’

Eremophila maculata 'Valentine'
Valentine® Red Emu Bush

This dense, evergreen Australian shrub provides great winter color. The tiny, dark green leaves develop an attractive reddish tinge in the cold, and masses of hot pink to red tubular flowers are produced from January through March. Flowering occurs on new tip growth, so an annual shearing is recommended in late spring, after flowering has ended. Plant it in full sun and well-drained soil.
