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.
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.

Buddleja 'Buzz Purple' is a compact and smaller growing variety of the ever popular butterfly attracting shrub. It flowers for most of the year, with sprays of honey scented blooms. A waterwise and easy care plant that tolerates some frost, and does well in most soil types. Likes full sun to part shade, and is great in pots, for massed plantings and as a feature shrub. Plant where you can enjoy the butterflies that will delight in the nectar rich flowers. Give it a handful of complete fertiliser in spring and summer, and some water in very dry periods for best flowering. Trim off dead flowers if needed.
