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

What a wonderful world...I mean weekend,


But we are living in a wonderful world despite the trials and tribulations life throws at us, we are rewarded with stunning gifts of nature every day! Two such gifts are flourishing in our amazing WA spring weather...Ficus Tineke for our impressive indoor offering and the magnificent Michelia Coco for outdoors this week.

For the fans of all things variegated the Ficus Tineke is an absolute "must have" in the indoor collection! The markings on this rubber plant look almost painted on by brush and are sure to add impact to any interior design. The beauty of this beauty is it's simplicity, it is happy in low light, needs little water and indeed little care! If you're lucky enough to have a shady spot on your patio, this stunner will also be quite happy there too!

Michelia Coco should be called the pudding plant in my opinion, it smells good enough to eat! Deliciously fragrant and a treat to behold with its glossy evergreen foliage and burgundy with cream flowers. The Coco is a flexible fragrant friend in the garden and can be a fabulous feature in a large pot, a handy screen or hedge in multiples growing up tall with support in the perfect sunny spot. Another easycare addition to the garden, will grow well through spring with thorough watering in until well established.

Have a great week Greenies!
