Rhiannon is an upright growing shrub with dark glossy foliage and large mauve/pink flowers. It grows to approximately 2m tall and 1m across. Flowering occurs in late spring and lasts for about four weeks. This is a great Tea-tree for in between driveways, as it is a manageable 2m tall, but only gets to 1m wide. Also great for hiding old fences.
This hardy vigorous, low-growing form of Banksia integrifolia covers ground quickly and densely, producing bright yellow flower spikes in autumn/winter. Makes a great slope stabilizer, ground cover, pot specimen, or cascading over retaining walls or terraces. Works well in hot spots and exposed areas. In part shade can develop a more open habit with darker foliage.
A weeping open shrub to 5m, with ball shaped red flowers in spring. A good drought tolerant plant once it is established, it likes a well drained soil and will not do well in waterlogged areas. Requires low humidity and a very well drained spot. Likes full sun to dappled shade. Prune back by after flowering to keep it looking its best.
Masses of pink buds open to the white starry flowers and these are set on a hardy, compact shrub with bright green aromatic foliage. It adapts well to a wide range of environments. This is a great feature shrub that can also be used as a cut flower. Plant it near paths where the pleasant aroma of the foliage will be released as you brush against it. Cut the plant back by 20-30% after flowering to encourage compact growth.
Evergreen rounded hybrid shrub with arching branches (2m x 1.5m) from two Chinese species. Glossy dark green leaves. Bell shaped white flowers tinged with pink followed by persistent coppery brown sepals. Useful as a screen, clipped hedge or contrast in shrubbery. Prefers a protected position, therefore part shade is preferred, but full sun is tolerated. Remove old woody stems.
A strong spreading small fern which can develop a good cover in moist, shady areas. Ground-hugging and neat, it has merit as a slope stabilizer, a pleasant container plant, and a ground cover under a canopy. Extra water is appreciated in summer when it is growing actively.
