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

Natural, native beauty!


Happy weekend Planty Peeps!

This week we are celebrating natural beauty...

As we emerge from the confines of the COVID-19 restrictions, as native Australians we are embracing a new us! Without the usual help from our hairdressers, nail salons, beauty salons with their plumping fillers and beautifying botox and amazing ability to control wayward eyebrows we are au-naturale and frankly I've found it liberating! Having not seen my natural hair colour since my late teens (a very long time ago) I've found a whole new me and am loving it!

So it's only fitting that we embrace our wonderful native plants who are also emerging from their seasonal confines to blossom forth into their full natural glory!

Posing proudly for us this week are Melaleuca Little Nessie, Hibbertia Scandens, Leptospermum Cardwell and Thryptomene Payne all in 200mm pots for instant impact and glorious Grevillea Tucker Time Fruitbox, Bonnie Prince Charlie and Carramar Orange in 130mm pots and full of flowers!

Have a great weekend and don't forget to enjoy and embrace all things natural around us

Best wishes
