Time to plant
Scaevolas! Now is a great time to get them in the ground as they will flower all Spring and Summer. The image above is of the Scaevola Purple Fanfare, an oldie but a goldie. Works well in pots or hanging baskets or as a colourful filler in the garden. Water well through Summer.
Stylidiums are just coming into flower. Ones like this Palgarup Trigger are real beauties and become a mass of tiny trigger flowers. Also available is the Stylidium caespitosum and Stylidium spathulatum.
