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

Ice, ice, baby! Brrrrrrrr!


Hello all you lovely Plant Peeps! 😊

Cold enough for you all?! The last few nights/early mornings we have had ice on the windscreens (another lesser known hit by Deep Purple)! I have to say I’m happy to hear things will be warming up a tad next week but not so much that the pressure cooker will be redundant already as just loving this weather for all the meaty stews, lamb shanks and bone broth yum, the house smells divine and I’m hungry just typing the words! 😊 This weekend sees a couple of special family birthdays for my clan and a bouquet arrived in loving memory of a dear departed who had a birthday today, delightful flowers from a very dear friend and amongst it all was Geraldton Wax!

Our first lovely photo just happens to be gorgeous Geraldton Wax (Chamelaucium) Purple Pride which is just bursting with buds and about to give a display that would send any Florist into a flap! Secondly, I’d like to introduce you to the lovely Edna Butler, a Camellia with blooms as beautiful as her namesake I’m sure and quite a statement piece in a 250mm pot, we have added a few other colourful Camellia varieties this week so do check out the availability list and don’t hesitate to google those names if they’re new to you (I have to all the time), when in bloom some of these ladies are just stunning! Moving on from the shrubbery to the greenery lol, still great candidates for many applications are the Liriope Evergreen Giant and the Blechnum Silver Lady Fern. Shown here individually and on-mass in the bay to demonstrate their singular beauty and the stunning effect of a bit of mass under-shade planting, very flexible crowd-pleasers that look amazing and that I’m delighted to share with you!

Stay warm and have a great week 😊

Best Wishes
