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.

Plant of the Month: Fringed Lily

Thysanotus multiflorus is commonly called the Many-flowered Fringed Lily, and is a lovely part of our local bush, growing from Perth to Albany. It has strappy grass foliage of a lush green, and makes a nice pot specimen. Flowering time is generally Spring to Summer, but we have one putting out some buds already! We have a large batch of really nice healthy plants in 140mm pots.
