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 presented on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations of it growing in our nursery crops, as well as in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we visit. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they include cultural information that would aid others in growing Verticordia plumosa 'Pink Lace'.
