Plant Species of the genus Brachyloma

Information about this genus
Name: Brachyloma
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: The smaller species are attractive, dainty little plants and it is surprising that they are not more widely cultivated as they would be well at home in rockeries or alpine trough gardens. They prefer moist, humus-rich, well-drained, slightly acidic soil with a position sheltered from the hottest summer sun. Propagation is from seed, small half-hardened cuttings or layers.
Description: Found in western and southern Australia, including Tasmania, this is a genus of 7 species of heath-like shrubs closely related to Leucopogon. They are usually erect plants with wiry stems and small pointed elliptical leaves that closely hug the stems. Their flowers are very small, usually less than 1?4 in (6?mm) long, and are narrowly urn-shaped to tubular with flared tips.
