Collectors Corner Eclectic Collection – Wollemi Pine, Brachyscome, Landscape Lilac – 8 tubes


For the plant collector, the eclectic collection.

This Australian native conifer caused a sensation when it was discovered in the wilderness of Wollemi National Park in NSW as its closest known relatives are fossils from the dinosaur era. It belongs to the Araucaria family which features native conifers such as the Bunya and Norfolk Island Pine and has a similar pyramid shape when mature. The dark green textured foliage contrasts well with the interstingly textured dark brown bark to form a very distinctive feature plant for the garden. The seed cones are also an attractive feature. This tree can be temperamental in cultivation as it is somewhat susceptible to root rot so ensure that you give it a well-drained spot in your garden or grow it in a pot. It can make a great potted live Christmas tree given good care and a suitable large container.

Anigozanthos Landscape Lilac is from the Tall and Tough range from Gardening With Angus. It suits most soils and can be grown in sun to part shade. Higher light levels will give better flowering. Blooming in spring with multi branched stems of beautiful subtle shades of pale purple to lilac colours, they will attract birds to the garden. They are also lovely eye catching cut flowers. As the flower opens it will age to a pale green. It will tolerate wet spells. An easy care and fast growing plant which forms a large clump, if the leaves become damaged from old age or extreme weather conditions such as frost, and when the flower stems die off, simply cut the old growth down close to the ground. The plant will reshoot from the underground rhizome. This fantastic mid-sized Kangaroo paw will grow with ease and perform well for many years, bearing masses of pretty lilac to pale green coloured flowers from spring through summer. ‘Landscape Lilac’ has been selected for the great flower colour and for the way it develops multiple shoots quickly. As it is a fast grower, it needs some feeding and watering through the warm months to reduce plant stress, which can lead to leaf spotting. A good native or general purpose fertiliser followed up with a good watering will ensure good growth.

Brachyscome multifida ‘Mauve Mystery’….This popular and very easy care Australian native daisy is grown for its dainty soft green foliage and masses of intriguing mauve and white flowers produced during the year. The flowers are mainly mauve, but can also sometimes have white areas or be all pale mauve to white. A great plant for edging, containers and baskets, and massed planting where it can provide year round flowering. Suits a wide area, from warmer climates like Sydney and Brisbane to cooler climates (in positions protected from heavy frost) such as Hobart and Canberra. Position- sunny to partly shaded, in moist well drained soil. Flowers best in a sunny spot. Prune after main flowering to maintain a compact shape, fertilise in spring and summer for best flowering.
