Welcome back Perthlings!

 

Yet another week has flown by and here we have another update for you!

 

It has been an amazing couple of weeks here at WPF HQ, we have been welcoming in some awesome new stock to grow to perfection over the next few weeks of wonderful Perth Spring/Summer weather. It is so good to see our stock list starting to swell it's pages once again.

 

This week we have several new additions to the list but also want to remind you of some old favourites too.

 

The amazing deep burgundy colour of Alternanthera Little Ruby makes it a firm favourite that flies out the door as fast as we can grow them!  It's mounding ground-cover growth habit is compact but spreading, making it a really flexible feature in the garden. It likes humidity, but also tolerates frost better than other Alternanthera; displaying white flowers in spring and reaching a potential maximum size of 40cm H x 90cm W.  Plant in full sun to part shade in well drained moist soils and it will look great in containers, as a border or ground cover in garden beds.

 

A new addition to our Camellia range is the Sasanqua Weroona; it's deep pink buds open into large white flowers with soft pink margins contrasting with it's glossy evergreen foliage. So versatile, perfect for hedging, feature planting and screening when planted in well drained soil in full sun to part shade. Protect from harsh sun and strong winds and you should enjoy a maximum growth around 2.5m tall x 2m wide.

Last but by no means least are our stunning Ficus Hillii standards in 400mm pots perfect statement pieces to line a driveway, stand sentry at the entry or proud as punch on the patio! It's dense, glossy evergreen foliage will look amazing in full sun or part shade and can tolerate a windy position. With regular pruning of foliage and roots it can be kept in a container happily.

Have a great week!

Best wishes

Flower Power!

Happy Sunday Green Thumbs ๐Ÿ˜Š

I hope youโ€™re all enjoying a great weekend! The Formula 1 season has started with the first race in Melbourne today and from what I can hear from the very-large TV in the lounge room it is all far too exciting for my blood pressure to cope with so itโ€™s a good job Iโ€™m in the office chatting to you guys instead! โ€œGo Danny Ricciardoโ€! No doubt I will get a blow-by-blow account from him indoors shortly! ๐Ÿ˜Š

The weather has been amazing yet again this past week and our plants are just loving it! So, keeping it short and sweet for you I thought we would just flout our flowers lol! A bit of plant porn for you with a full frontal from the flourishing Mesembryanthemum Magenta, this stunning stalwart of WA deserves her glorious title with this stunning show of blooms, it feels like a real insult to reduce her down to Pig Face! Again, one of those names which baffles my noggin! They mustโ€™ve been on some pretty good shit to look at these beauties and say, to hell with that long botanical nonsenseโ€ฆlets call it โ€œPig Faceโ€!

How to follow that? Well we have some gorgeous ladies lined up in our next photo for you, full of flower and posing their petals proudly are the three Nerium Oleander ladies; Madonna, Mrs Andreason and Single White, proper lovely they are too! Had to raise the tone a little after my earlier outburst, apologies for unladylike language but not sorry enough to edit it out lol!

Ok lovelies, have a wonderful week ๐Ÿ˜Š
