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.

Gazania x 'Double Gold' is a ground covering perennial plant with brilliant double golden flowers for most of the year. It is fast growing, very low maintenance and adaptable to most soil types. The dense, matting habit once established will deter weed growth. The double flowers will not set seed, making this gazania a low weed hazard. As a bonus, 'Double Gold' flowers much more than single gazanias. Little aftercare is needed after the plants are established, as long as all perennial weeds are eradicated before planting. Fertilise with a handful of slow release fertiliser in spring.
