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.
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.
Hedges. This article explains how to care for and maintain your Australian hedge.
The lemon tree is a large evergreen shrub to small tree. It has glossy green dense foliage, perfumed white flowers, followed by attractive,tasty and nutritious fruit. Citrus have been grown as ornamental plants as well as for their fruit. The perfume of citrus blossoms is a delightful feature in the garden.
Citrus thrive in a sunny, humid environment, and have low frost tolerance. They grow best on well drained, fertile soil with regular watering. If they go through dryness at flowering time, they can drop the developing fruit. Prone to a few pests and diseases, they do need regular attention.
