Is Yates Thrive suitable for Australian natives?

I have recently planted small dwarf Callistemon viminalis hybrid "Little John" bottle brush and want to know if I can fertilise with soluble Yates thrive.

Dear Len,

When using fertilisers on native plants it is always better to use one with a low phosphorus level. Thrive soluble all purpose has a phosphorus level of 5.5. You would be best to use Yates Dynamic Lifter for natives as the phosphorus level is only 1.3.
