Ozothamnus ‘Magic Marmalade’ is a small hardy shrub that will add colour to your garden or patio from Mid-Winter through to Spring with its prolific display of red-bronze flower buds that progressively change to hues of orange and then lemon as the flowers mature and open. Ozothamnus ‘Magic Marmalade’ is the result of careful cross breeding and selection based on the Australian native species, Ozothamnus diotophyllus and Ozothamnus diosmifolius.
