Australian native plants are well known for their unique beauty. Long neglected as garden plants in Western Australia, they have had a recent surge in popularity as water-wise alternatives to traditional garden plants. Plant breeders, both in Australia and overseas are developing cultivars and hybrids with wide appeal. As well as looking spectacular in the contemporary or bush garden, our local flora is highly attractive to birds and other native animals.
The white correa doesn't have your typical Correa bell flower, instead sporting white star flowers instead. It is also one of the more tough correas, tolerating a sunnier position and some alkaline soils. Flowers autumn to winter, and responds well to a prune after flowering to keep a nice dense shape. Perfect for low maintenance cottege gardens.
The Creeping Boobialla is a tough garden plant surviving in some tough full sun positions. It has a lush green foliage and a mass of white summer flowers. Good for verge gardens. Also tolerates shady spots.
0.5m high and 1.5m wide.
Anigozanthos 'Bush Pearl'
The 'Bush Pearl' kangaroo paw has been around for many years, but is still one of our favourites. It flowers almost all year (just prune off the old flower heads), and has been a reliable performer for many customers.
30cm high flowers.
A very cute WA plant that keeps a low bushy habit. Requires a well drained position and presfers full sun. It makes an excellent container plant.
60cm high x 1m wide.
Also known as the Red Billardiera. This is a native climber to WA, but can be pruned to form a low sprawling shrub if there is no trellis to climb on. Prefers full sun, but will tolerate some shade.
Grevillea 'Ellendale Pool'
The Grevillea fililoba 'Ellendale Pool' is a tough performer despite its soft foliage. Flowers mostly in winter and likes a good prune to keep the foliage in check. Good for hedging and verge gardens.
1m high x 1.5m wide.
Baeckea virgata miniature
Now with the name change Sannantha virgata miniature. A compact dense shrub that is excellent for topiaries, hedges and bonsai work. In fact any sort of pruning! It is a long lived plant, and a good alternative for Diosma.
