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
A large shrub that grows along the coast of WA from Shark Bay to Augusta. Commonly called the chenille honeymyrtle, this tough plant produces tiny, overlapping leaves and large showy flowers, held conspicuously on the ends of the branches. The flowers have a pinkish/purple hue before the brilliant, fluffy, cream flowers open starting at the base and moving toward the tip giving a really eye-catching display. Will tolerate coastal conditions including salt spray, wind and limestone soils. Drought hardy and mildly frost hardy once established. Best in full sun.
