Adenanthos 'Silver Haze' - A large upright growing shrub to 6 feet tall and maybe as wide that can be kept narrower by pinching. It has beautiful silvery foliage and small red flowers in spring. It looks similar to the form of Adenanthos x cunninghamii that we grow but is upright growing and is denser and hardier than Adenanthos sericeus. Plant in full sun in a well-drained soil and give very little to occasional irrigation. Hardy to at least 28F but ultimate hardiness has not been tested. Avoid fertilizers with Phosphorus. This should prove to be a good specimen plant or for use as an informal hedge that is good for attracting hummingbirds and other wildlife with foliage useful in cut flower arrangements. This plant was first brought accessioned by the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum in 1998 (as UCSC#98.7) and is growing in their Rock Garden. It was selected as a 2015 UCSC Koala Blooms Australian Plant Introduction.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Adenanthos 'Silver Haze'.
