Ptilotus exaltus ‘Joey’® (Mula Mula)

Ptilotus exaltus ‘Joey’® (Mula Mula)

Native to central Australia, this herbaceous perennial displays an abundance of upright, conical-shaped flower heads that start out silver and mature to neon-pink near the tips. The lush green foliage takes on a luminous silver sheen as the plan matures. The dramatic flowers and foliage of ‘Joey’® makes it well suited for the role of “thriller” in a mixed container consisting of “thriller, filler, and spiller” plants.

Ptilotus exaltus ‘Joey’® (pronounced ti-lo-tus) is sun-loving and thrives in hot conditions. It prefers acidic, well-drained soil and low to moderate irrigation once established. It is hardy to 32°F, and the Sunset Climates Zones are 13-17, 19-24. It has a compact, well-branched growth habit of 12-18” tall x 10-12” wide.

We are currently growing Ptilotus exaltus ‘Joey’® in 1 gallon containers. To see photos of these interesting perennials, visit our website and follow us on Instagram and Facebook @clearwatercolornursery to see what’s happening around the nursery.
