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.
Crowea are dainty evergreen low shrubs with a naturally neat and rounded habit. They have aromatic foliage festooned with multi-hued pink star flowers sought by native bees and butterflies. Flowering is in autumn and winter, perfect times for brightening the garden with masses of pretty flowers. Use as a mounding groundcover in beds, cascading over banks or walls, or as a pot plant for balconies, courtyards and patios. A spot with some shade from the heat of the day suits them best, and dry conditions will shorten the life of the plant.
