Spreading shrub to 2.5 m although can get a little larger in cultivation. It has very large, leathery tough green leaves with serrated margins. The new growth is colourful, with shades red, maroon or brown with a dense felt-like covering of brown hairs. Plants from different areas seem to flower at different times, some spring-summer, others predominantly autumn. The stunning large flower spikes are metallic green with pinkish styles in bud, becoming cream-yellow and fading to golden-brown in the golden stage. Full sun or part shade in moist well drained soils including seasonally inundated soils. Suitable for coastal gardens. Attracts nectar feeding birds.
