Native grasses and friends. An exciting thing is happening in the world of Australian plants. Wild species that have tantalised gardeners in the past are now being improved to create a diverse palette of new varieties that offer all kinds of advantages. In particular, the necessity for water-wise, low maintenance gardens has inspired interest in plants that can be used as ground covers that will not only suppress weeds and erosion but also look fantastic.
Brugmansia are very ornamental woody small trees or shrubs with large, pendulous trumpet shaped flowers in various colours, from white to pinks, oranges and yellow.
