Saturday July 4th
We've topped up our native plants collection for the weekend - including a wide range of cold tolerant species and forms. Almost all of the native plants we stock will handle coastal winters and light frosts with no problems, but many will also do well even in more severe Canberra winter conditions if planted with some protection. If you're not sure which native plants will work best in your location drop in for a chat about your exact conditions and we can recommend the right plants for your winter garden.

Banksia integrifolia (Coast banksia) is a hardy local native which features bright yellow flowers in autumn and winter and is particularly well suited to coast plantings with sandy soils and high exposure to salt and wind.

It has also been grafted onto tall standards to create stunning weeping features. We currently have the ground cover form and several tall standards in stock.

As we start to head into winter one native shrub definitely worth a look at for those colder spots in the garden is Grevillea 'Lady O'. This popular hybrid combines the hardiness and cold tolerance of G. victoriae with the long flowering period of G. rhyolitica 'Deua Flame'.
