Answer: It is very hard to know which plant that you are referring to – there are many Silver Streak plants. If it is Adenanthos ‘Silver Streak’, then it probably died due to the very wet Summer. This plant is native to WA and doesn’t cope well with the humid Summers in the Eastern States. It tends to die of root rot.   Don
