I am looking at getting some plants for our verge and am wondering about a Pincushion Hakea. I've always liked the look of these, and on my home the other day I noticed a garden that has three in a row and they are all currently flowering and look great!
I've just read that they can grow to 6m though. I know that isn't massive, but it would possibly affect the warm winter light we receive in the mornings.
Can anyone tell me how long it would take to get that tall and if they can be constrained through pruning to stay at a height of 2 - 3 meters? Would it be worth getting some tube stock now to grow until we are ready to put it in the ground?
I also just read about a dwarf variety on a burkes backyard link.
The pictures appear in a scrollable window. Scroll down to the last one to see one in a pot. I think it looks pretty nice.
