Australian Native Orchids. Native orchids range from the spectacular epiphytic (growing on trees) and lithophytic (growing on rocks) species of the tropical jungles and warmer areas of Australia, to the intricately subtle terrestrial (growing in the ground) species found throughout the dry eucalypts forests throughout the continent.
Bougainvillea 'Temple Fire' has eye catching bright pink bracts with tiny white flowers, and is a great vigorous climber. It can also be used to cascade down banks, and is a brilliant plant for adding colour to warm gardens for most of the year. Best in tropical to subtropical climates, as well as temperate areas. It needs a sturdy support, as it can grow to ten metres, but can be pruned to size. You will need to wear stout gloves when handling, as the plant has large thorns. Rarely troubled with pests or disease. Tolerates light frosts. Good for coastal sites.
