Hakea ‘Burrendong Beauty’ is a small sprawling shrub, with beautiful red flowers through most of winter. Great plant for nectar eating birds, and for providing winter colour.
Correa ‘Canberra Bells’ has a spectacular two tone red flower on dark green foliage. This plant will look great in any garden, as long as the drainage is reasonable. Plant is not especially dense, particularly when planted in shade. Benefits from being pruned after flowering.
Correa ‘Catie Bec’ is a lovely grey foliaged Correa, flowering most of winter. Masses of upright pink bells adorn this plant for many months. Drought and frost tolerant, and attractive to nectar eating birds. Habit can be open in heavy shade, prune the tips of the plant to promote bushiness.
Leptospermum ‘Cherish’ is a medium to tall shrub 2-3 metres high by 2 metres wide. In spring it is covered in large white flowers on long branches. Cherish is a hardy shrub that will grow in most soil types. It can be used for cut flowers if stems are picked when the buds first start to open. Another great choice for a low hardy hedge.
This is a flashy crimson foliaged maple with dense upright branching. It has a compact growth habit with its large crimson leaves in summer turning to gold and orange in Autumn. Due to its compact size and stunning colour, this maple is highly suitable for smaller landscapes, particularly as a garden feature. Great foliage contrast and stunning colours throughout the year. A good selection for screening and for narrow sites.
Prefers moist but well-drained soils. Is somewhat tolerant of poor soils, moderate heat and air pollution. A hardy tree, good for tough sites and is low maintenance once established. Foliage can burn in summer if planted in full sun.
An amazing shrub with striking grey foliage and huge, bright yellow papery flowers for long periods through the year. Remove old flowers for an extra burst of blooms and a compact shape. Great for hot spots in the garden if watered regularly. This shrub makes a wonderful pot specimen for its foliage and flower display. Great for attracting butterflies to your garden. Plant is less compact but retains flowers longer when in part shade.
