Verticordia plumosa 'Pink Lace' (Featherflower) - An evergreen dwarf rounded shrub to 18 to 24 inches tall with attractive bluish soft needle-like foliage. Lavender-pink, delicately fringed flowers in tight clusters. Light honey fragrance. Profuse bloom winter and spring. Plant in a sunny location with good drainage and minimal fertilizer. Drought tolerant. Hardy to the mid 20's F. A 2003 UCSC Koala Blooms Introduction. We grew this plant from 2003 until 2008 - it may still be available from one of the other UCSC Koala Blooms partners, Rosendale Nursery, Suncrest Nursery, Monterey Bay Nursery and Native Sons Nursery.  The information on this page is based on the research that we have conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from what we have found on reliable online sources, as well as from observations made of our crops of this plant growing in the nursery and of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Verticordia plumosa 'Pink Lace'.
