Bulletproof landscape plants. Not all plants are equal. Many require the soil and climate (amongst other things) to be 'just right'. The plants described in this article are the ones that deserve the title of 'bulletproof' and are a good starting point for an easy-care garden.

Anigozanthos 'Green Dragon' is a clumping herbaceous perennial with lovely emerald green and cream paw shaped flowers. It has a dwarf habit with unbranched stems. A short-lived garden plant but outstanding in a pot. Grow in a sunny spot in a well drained soil, and fertilise in spring with a good slow release fertiliser. A sprinkle of snail pellets will control slugs and snails, which love the new growth.
