Found in a wide range of habitats including eucalypt woodland, heath, and openings in sub-rainforest scrub; often in moister sites such as floodplains, near swamps or creeks but also on ridges and slopes.

It grows best in areas with a mean annual rainfall of 1,000 – 1,500 mm.

The plant tolerates some frost and can withstand a dry season of 6 – 8 months.
In the wild the plant usually grows on sandy soils, occasionally on clay-loams.

Plants are suitable for planting on wasteland soils with a texture varying from pulverized lateritic soil to sandy loam,
including loose soils on dumps of coal and bauxite mines, where it regenerates spontaneously.

The flowers are a very rich source of nectar.
The nectar can be licked from the flowers, or they can be soaked in water to make a sweet drink.
