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

Naturally Native...


Hey there Greenfinger "da daaa da"

Obviously this should read Goldfinger and the tuneful da da-ing is reminiscent of good old Shirley Bassey (Burley Chassis as my dear old Dad calls her) singing the memorable, nay, iconic Bond movie theme tune! This week we pay homage to the best ever James Bond actor who sadly left us for the heavenly stage aged a magnificent 90 years! Possibly the only actor with the ability to convince the world he was a Russian Navy submarine Captain...with a Scottish accent! Whatever part he played he certainly left me shaken AND stirred I don't mind telling you! RIP gorgeous Mr Connery.

So this week we have an absolutely gorgeous array of natives for you, looking far more authentic than our Sean's Russian submariner! They'll certainly be doing their bit to help rejuvenate the native birds and the bees wherever they're planted. This show-stopping line up reads (L to R): Grevillea Superb 130mm, Grevillea Coconut Ice 130mm, Grevillea Thelemanniana Green 130mm, Grevillea Bonnie Prince Charlie 200mm, Sollya Heterophylla 130mm and Callistemon Hannah Ray 130mm.

Have a great week!

Jo :)
