Abstract Seed was collected from a population of Ptilotus nobilis and initiated into tissue culture on 12 Jul 2005. Genotypes exhibiting vigorous growth and high multiplication rates were maintained in tissue culture. After approximately 10 subcultures, plantlets were deflasked on 25 Jan 2006 and grown on in the nursery. Evaluation of six mature specimens was conducted on 29 Mar 2006. The selection was identified as having the following unique characteristics: upright plant form, high basal branching, numerous inflorescences, acutely tapered inflorescence shape, and mid-purple inflorescence colour. Further evaluation in tissue culture found the genotype could be consistently multiplied at a faster rate than other genotypes. Breeders: Margaret Johnston, Melinda Perkins, Dion Harrison, Daryl Joyce.
