Lower slopes



Flowering time

November to March


A slender, lax shrub up to 300 mm high with small, urn-shaped flowers (4mm long) varying from white to rosy pink. The long awns on the anthers, which have given the plant its name, can only be seen after dissecting the flower tube. Very similar to Erica pulchella.
