Zanthorrea Specialises In Australian Plants

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.

All the plants we grow on site are potted on by hand and our nursery meets Both NIASA (Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme Australia) and SGA (Sustainable Gardening Australia) standards.

Possum Banksia  

Banksia flowers always provide a stunning display, but this one, takes flowering to a whole new level!

Heart-leafed Flame Pea

The combination of bright orange and pink with a spot of yellow on the pea flowers produced by this small, Perth hills shrub, make for an eye-catching display of colour in spring. This understory plant does well in shady positions, but will happily grow in full sun as well. Tip prune regularly to encourage a more dense habit. Plant in free draining soil.
