This unusual colour form of Brachyscome suits containers and rockeries. Blooms range from yellow to orange with stunning variations throughout the year. Trim regularly for best flower display and a compact habit, particularly in shaded spots where the plant can become straggly if left unpruned.
A lovely tidy shrub with fine glossy foliage and a semi-pendulous habit. Bright red/crimson flowers in spring/summer. This versatile small shrub can be used effectively in both formal and informal settings due to its neat frame and floriferous display. Remove old flowers for extra bushiness and another burst of flowers. Performs equally well in full sun or part shade, but may grow slightly taller in a sheltered position.
Leptospermum ‘Pageant’ is a low spreading shrub that has a spectacular display of bright pink/purple flowers in spring. Pageant grows to approximately 1 – 1.5m high by 1.5 – 2m across, and is useful for low informal hedging. Leptospermums provide nectar for birds, as well as dense growth for habitat.
Daphne ‘Perfume Princess’ is a new variety of daphne, with much larger leaves and blooms. In Canberra it also seems to flower earlier than the standard Daphne odora, so it’s a good way to extend the perfume in your garden over a longer period. Needs protection from afternoon sun. A reliable and hardy new cultivar.
‘Purple Haze’ is a medium sized hardy shrub growing to approximately 1.5 metres tall. In spring it has brilliant large deep purple flowers. This tea tree will grow in a wide range of climates and soil types. It is suitable for the smaller garden, shrub beds or as a low screen.
Perfect for growing in containers, bedding displays and many landscape applications or as an informal hedge. Less bushy in shady sites but flowers tend to last longer in shade than in full sun.
