Chorizema varium – Bush Flame Pea
Chorizema varium – ‘Bush Flame Pea’
A lovely endemic plant growing to 30m tall and 1m wide. It produces stunning pea shaped flowers in winter and spring that are pink and orange in colour.
It is a lovely plant for growing in coastal, native, waterwise and native cottage gardens. It is also great to grow in containers due to its unique flower colour combination.
It should be grown in part shade in well drained soils. When first establishing it should be tip pruned to encourage a bushy habit and regularly watered.
