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.

Sannantha 'Summer Stars'

Sannantha Summer Stars

A really versatile plant that could perform a function in
just about any garden! Small, glossy green leaves are complimented beautifully
in summer by the clean, white, star shaped flowers. The flowers not only bring
a welcome cool feel, but will also attract insect pollinators, like hoverflies,
to your garden. It’s dense habit means that ‘Summer Stars’ makes a great screen
and, with regular pruning, can be shaped in to a formal hedge if desired. You
can also under-prune to create a small tree with a lovely shade canopy. Or put
it in a mixed garden bed, so some summer colour. Grows in full sun or shade in
free-draining soil.

Featured Plants

Banksia prionotes dwarf

Dwarf Acorn Banksia, or Orange Banksia

The dwarf form of this eye-catching, local Banksia is a much more manageable size, for gardens, than the full-size variety. The large, orange flower cones are held conspicuously above the foliage from early autumn to winter. Flowers will attract nectar feeding birds and insects and then the attractive seed cones will bring in the seed eating birds a few months after the flowers are finished. Grow in mixed garden beds, or as an informal screen. Best in full sun, but will tolerate part shade. Will grow in most soil types.

Correa baeuerlenii

Chef’s Cap Correa

One of the larger growing varieties of Correas with glossy, deep green leaves, offset by dark burgundy branches. In winter, limey yellow-green, tubular, pendulous flowers are produced which resemble the shape of typical chef’s cap, hence the common name. Grow in mixed garden beds, to attract birds or is useful as a dense screen. Best in part shade with summer watering.

155 Watsonia Road, Maida Vale, Western Australia 6057.

Grevillea 'Honey Gem'

This is one of the tried-and-true large Grevilleas, that has

been performing well in Perth gardens for years! Dark green, deeply divided leaves with rich, honey, yellow-orange coloured flowers on the ends of the branches all year round. Can be used at the back of mixed garden beds, as an informal screen, or be under pruned to form a small tree. Best in full sun in free draining soil. Prune back behind flowers to encourage a dense habit and more flowers.

Thomasia purpurea

This small shrub turns purple in spring, when the papery,

purple flowers cover the bush for a stunning display of colour. A great filler for those dry shady areas and will also grow in full sun. Use in mixed garden beds for a pop of colour in spring.

Eucalyptus erythrocorys

“Illyarrie’ or ‘Red Capped Gum’

You have probably seen the stunning, large yellow blossoms of this small/medium WA tree as you drive around Perth at the moment. The buds are just as attractive as the flowers, turning a bright red before they drop off to reveal the yellow blooms beneath. It usually forms interesting shapes with its multi-trunked habit and can be pruned to control shape and size. Grows in full sun or part shade in most soil types, including limestone.

4m-8m H x 5m W

Darwinia taxifolia

A low growing, spreading shrub with clusters of beautiful

red-pink flowers from spring-summer. Great in pots or hanging baskets, or at the front of mixed garden beds. Best in a slightly sheltered position with regular summer watering.
