WHOLESALE BRACHYSEMA NURSERIES
Gastrolobium celsianum (syn. Brachysema lanceolatum) is the Swan River Pea, a small spreading evergreen shrub to around 1 – 1.5m. Useful as a background plant or low informal hedge in native gardens.
Attractive red flowers from winter to spring on a plant that copes well with a variety of soil and climate conditions as long as the soil is well drained. Widely used in native themed gardens where it will attract birds and insects.
Used both as a ground cover plant as well as a low hedge in full sun to good dappled shade. Good rock garden plant. Very easy care and low maintenance once established make it suited to planting in commercial projects.
This is a variable species sometimes a small bush, other times prostrate. The prostrate variety is sold as Gastrolobium latifolium, usually with broader leaves than the species
