Leptospermum ‘Julieanne’ is a fantastic ground cover form of tea-tree, suitable for a sunny position with adequate water. Thrives in most soil types, and is hardy in the harsh conditions experienced in the Canberra region. Water well through the first summer.
A bushy selection of Xerochrysum bracteatum with huge lemon yellow flower heads sitting above the plant. Retains a compact habit with regular trimming. An excellent plant for rockeries, mixed low flower beds, containers and under the dappled shade of trees.
Correa ‘Little Cate’ is a stunning small dense shrub, with many uses in any garden. Can be planted in sunny or shady locations. Cool weather flowering is a bonus for you and the birds. Requires little to no maintenance due to its compact, bushy form.
A hardy, compact selection from Banksia ericifolia with bright orange/burgundy flower spikes in abundance in autumn/winter. Dry-hardy, but regular water in dry periods will produce best results. Retain a few flowers for birds to use for nest building material. Will tolerate part shade but stays bushy and flowers more prolifically in full sun.
A white flowering compact daisy for use in rockeries, borders, mixed beds and as a container plant. Great for attracting butterflies to your garden. Will brighten up areas uder trees but can adopt an open habit if in shade all year-round. Trim old flowers lightly for another flush of flowers, and cut back hard in spring for new, vigorous growth and a compact shape.
The vibrant magenta flowers of this form of Brachyscome formosa make this a useful plant for many purposes. Great for containers, rockeries, under trees and, due to its suckering habit it is useful for stabilizing slopes and terraces. A light trim will encourage more flowers. Develops an open habit when planted in part shade all year round.
