Waratahs are an Australian native plant genus that is a member of the Proteaceae plant family; an evergreen shrub that requires a free draining acid soil.
The Corroboree Waratah has an abundance of red blooms in Spring, attracting honey eaters and other birds to the garden. It can be planted as a feature or en masse, and will tolerate part shade and full sun. They have been shown to grow successfully in coastal areas.
Generally growing three metres in height and one metre in width, the Corroboree Waratahs height can be maintained by removing the flowers and leaving at least 10 centimetres of stem behind. The cut flowers can then be used in floral arrangements.
When fertilising waratahs it is best to use a low phosphorus fertiliser. Although waratahs are moderately drought tolerant and do not like to be overwatered, they may require watering during hot summer periods, especially in the first few years during their establishment.
The Corroboree Waratah is moderately frost tolerant and will tolerate up to -5 ˚C. They are generally available from 42mm through to 250mm.
