Darwinia meeboldii (Cranbrook Bell) is a shrub which is endemic to the south-west of Western Australia.[2] It has an erect and straggly habit, growing to between 0.5 and 3 metres high.[2] The bracts around the flowers form a pendent “bell” which is usually white with red tips.[3] A group of 8 small flowers are concealed inside. These are primarily produced between August and November.[2][3]
It occurs on peaty soils on slopes in the western part of the Stirling Range National Park.[2][4]
Cultivation[edit]
The species requires good drainage and protection from direct sun.[3] It is difficult to propagate from seed, but cuttings strike readily.[3] Grafting on stocks of Darwinia citriodora may be carried out in areas with unsuitable growing conditions including high humidity.[3]
