The stunning Telopea ‘Essie’s Gift’ offers something truly special in waratah circles. It rewards with spectacular displays of deep pink flower heads throughout the spring making it a real statement plant. This variety is famed for its low growing, compact form which means it can be enjoyed in a wide range of garden applications from hedging through to single specimen planting. The large flower heads are borne on short arching stems and can also be enjoyed in cut flower displays.


‘Essie’s Gift’ enjoys most aspects but it is best to protect from harsh westerly exposure. Grows well in slightly acidic soil types but thrives in fertile well drained soils. Prune by one-third after flowering to maintain shape and vigour and to encourage further flowering flushes. An application of slow release fertiliser formulated for natives in autumn and early spring is beneficial. Low water requirements once established. Provide deep soaks during periods of extended heat.
