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

G'day Greenies!


Happy weekend one and all once again! Well it’s that time again when I bore you all senseless with my nonsensical wafflings...sometimes featuring plants...hooray I hear you all say...sarcastically!! Hehe!

Well this week...Peter piper picked a peck of pickled....patersonias! Perfectly pretty pops of purple petals a plenty! A poised and proper plant - precious but hardy grass to pretty up any place!

I feel like I’ve just presented an episode of Sesame Street...this week's episode was brought to you by the letter P!

Anyhooo enough of that, now to the serious business of trees. We have some absolute pearlers for your perusing pleasure! Advanced Callistemon kings park in full fabo flower and one of my personal faves Robinia mop tops...I just love these babies! A real statement tree with stunning foliage and structure, plus I just love the name. I like to call them MOPPERS!

Ok chaps thanks for reading and supporting. Take care and enjoy your weekends :)
