Related to the Tuckeroo but much smaller & more restrained. It is a stark, striking shrub that suits xeroscapes, native Australian gardens & the like. The flowers are unusual & hop-like, but not colourful. The foliage is eye-catching & provides colour year round. I really like Dodonaeas because I like rugged looking plants. They may not suit a typical cottage garden though.
