Winter has arrived!

Hi Greenies, This week we want to sing the praises of the sensational Syngonium! Syngonium podophyllum, aka the arrowhead vine, a native from Mexico to Ecuador, is an evergreen climbing vine. Collected in its many forms as a houseplant, it has attractive ornamental foliage which changes shape as the leaves mature. Syngonium has been widely cultivated as a garden and indoor plant, particularly in the warmer parts of Australia, numerous cultivars are widely available. This species is naturalised in the coastal districts of south-eastern, central and northern Queensland and is quickly becoming more common, possibly even becoming naturalised in SW Western Australia. Preferring damp, shady conditions with fertile soil, open woodlands, waterways, undisturbed gardens in tropical and sub-tropical areas. In the perfect habitat and with a tree to climb it can reach around 20m in length. Rarely ever seen when kept indoors, the Syngonium has cream/white flowers from January to Autumn and orange/red fruit during Autumn and Winter. We currently have White Butterfly and Red Heart varieties available. I just couldn't let this week pass by without giving our stunning Camelia another shout out, this is truly their time of the year to shine, and we currently have an array of varieties looking "blooming" marvellous in full flower! Have a great week all Best wishes
