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

Plant Postulations!

Well happy Saturday boys and girls!

What a gloriously sunny weekend it has been I think you will agree! Itโ€™s enough to make you want to grab your gardening gloves and get out into the garden, get some vit D and a jump on springtime!? So this week the team of Wanneroo are proud to present a plethora of perfection to you....she says whilst partaking in a cheeky Prosecco for prime alliteration purposes of course ;) Ahem...moving on we have Philo Rojo Congo 200mms of epic proportions! I canโ€™t tell you how much I love the Philoโ€™s as does Mum, you might say we are Philo fanatics! (Pleading poetic license with that one!) They not only have beauty but they are such a low maintenance plant and go great outdoors under shade or indoors in low light conditions. Next up Iโ€™m going to group these babies together as I fear I may be losing a lot of you with my Prosecco postulations... Rhaphiepis indica 200s in full flower and also featured in our fragrance range, Syzigium resilience 305s and bush Xmas 250s all looking fabulous. These advanced shrubs would provide excellent options for landscapers or for people looking for hardy, low maintenance hedging options for a challenging, perhaps coastal garden or simply for a bit of privacy from those nosy Neighbourโ€™s! Ok well I will sign off now as my Prosecco juice is getting warm! Enjoy the rest of your weekends chaps and enjoy the weather!

Cheers
