Zanthorrea's Plants

Australian native plants are well known for their unique beauty. Long neglected as garden plants in Western Australia, they have had a recent surge in popularity as water-wise alternatives to traditional garden plants. Plant breeders, both in Australia and overseas are developing cultivars and hybrids with wide appeal. As well as looking spectacular in the contemporary or bush garden, our local flora is highly attractive to birds and other native animals.

All the plants we grow on site are potted on by hand and our nursery meets Both NIASA (Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme Australia) and SGA (Sustainable Gardening Australia) standards.

Great in rockeries, pots or as a hanging basket specimen in full sun. Always use a good quality potting mix and ensure adequate drainage.
