Proteaceae > Adenanthos sericeus var. ,

Adenanthos sericeus, commonly known as Woolly Bush, is a shrub which in native to Australia.

It is a shrub which can grow up to 5 metres in height. It produces red or orange flowers between early winter and mid autumn (June to April in Australia).

Though its flowers are inconspicuous, A. sericeus is considered an attractive garden plant for the colour and texture of its dense foliage. Its high tolerance of salt-laden winds makes it an excellent screen plant in coastal areas.[1][2]


In cultivation it usually grows to between 2 and 3 metres in height and a similar width, and requires little pruning to stay shapely.

Due to its salt and wind tolerance, it makes an excellent coastal plant, but is not suited to heavier soils. It has a medium to fast growth rate.
