AUSTRALIAN NATIVE NURSERY PERTH
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.
PLANT OF THE MONTH
Anigozanthos 'Bush Diamond'
One of the many dwarf kangaroo paws which will flower for most of the year. Prolific white flowers, with a pink tinge at the base, put on
a showy display from late autumn to early summer. Great in pots, or mixed with other kangaroo paws in mass plantings. Cut flower spikes back to ground level once they start to lose their colour. Regular feeding and plenty of summer water are the key to keeping these prolific flowerers looking great.
