5 Use in horticulture
Verticordia fimbrilepis subsp. australis is a slender shrub which grows to a height of about 40 cm (20 in) and which has one openly branched stem at its base. The leaves lower on the stems are linear in shape, almost round in cross-section, 2–5 mm (0.08–0.2 in) long with a rounded end with a sharp point. Those near the flowers are more oblong to narrow egg-shaped.
The flowers are arranged in open groups on stalks 5–15 mm (0.2–0.6 in) long near the ends of the branches. The floral cup is broadly top-shaped, about 1.5 mm (0.06 in) long, glabrous but slightly rough. The sepals are bright mauve-pink 3–3.5 mm (0.12–0.14 in) long, with 5 to 7 hairy lobes. The petals are the same colour as the sepals, sometimes with a white base and are about 2.5–3.0 mm (0.098–0.12 in) long, 1.0 mm (0.04 in) or less wide, egg-shaped with long, coarse hairs. The staminodes have a broad stalk and a hairy fringe, lacking the single long hair in their centre of subspecies fimbrilepis. The style is 0.2–0.4 mm (0.008–0.02 in) long, straight and glabrous. Flowering time is from October to December.
