Adenanthos 'Silver Haze' (Silver Haze Woollybush) - A large upright growing shrub to 6 feet tall and nearly as wide, but 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.  The information displayed on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations that we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how it has performed in our crops out in the nursery field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well, and welcome hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information we do not mention that would aid others in growing Adenanthos 'Silver Haze'.
