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.
Gymea Lilies - Doryanthes excelsa. Everything about the Gymea lily (Doryanthes excelsa) is larger than life. The bold foliage can reach over four metres in height and some majestic flower stems can reach over ten metres tall.
Native Annuals and Perennials. Australian annual and perennial plants can be used to create excitement in your garden as they are quick growing, usually very floriferous and because they are relatively temporary they can be replaced on a regular basis to add something new each year.
Brachyscome 'Mauve Delight' is a proven groundcover performer over a number of years, and is great for low maintenance plantings. This is one of the best mauve brachyscome, thanks to its long flowering time, compact suckering growth habit and nice divided foliage. The mauve flowers have beautiful contrasting yellow centres, and are massed over the plant nearly all year round. After flowering flushes, it is good to tip prune the plant to keep it compact. A sweet little plant for rockeries, pots and borders. Feed in spring with a good slow release fertiliser.
