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.

Casuarina 'Shagpile' is a quirky ground covering low shrub that is tough and very hardy for planting in many diverse situations. It grows with soft long thin leaves, hugging the ground and flowing over mounds and down banks. It is tolerant of frost and dry spells, and needs minimal attention once established. Does well in most soil types, as long as they have reasonable drainage. It has dense weed supressing growth. Good for full and part sun, and for coastal areas. Great for poolside plantings as it is very tidy.
