19th of February: Some welcome cool weather!

After a very unusual start to February, we are fortunate to have some cool weather that feels like Autumn is on the way. Indeed Autumn is only a couple of weeks away, and one of the best times to get out into the garden and plant. As March can still have some hot dry days, it is good to keep an eye on the soil drying out, and also giving any new plants an extra drink.

In the gardens we have some plants start to put on a terrific flowering show like the eremophilas and scaevolas. If you are looking for a relaxing break, feel free to come have a wander through our gardens.

Eremophila calorhabdos - looking stunning!

New and old carpets for a comparison.

10th of February: New carpets are on the way!

Hurray we are getting new carpet in our shop! The old carpet has done a fantastic job, but our carpet cleaner told us it needs to be replaced. The works will be done after business hours, so we are open as normal but our gift shop will look a little bare for the next two days (10th of February). We should be all back up and running with a beautiful shop by the weekend. We hope you like the new colours we have chosen.

We have lots of new stock growing on out the back including the declared rare: Grevillea infundibularis. This is the first time retailing this plant for us, so keep an eye out for it in the coming month, or give us a call and we can reserve one for you.

8th of December: Happy festive season!

What a fantastic spring of mild temperature and late rain! The garden is thriving in these conditions, and it gives our plants a better chance of survival going into summer. As we head into some warmer weather it is time to do a waterwise garden check. Make sure your reticulation system is working optimally, mulch your garden, use a soil wetter if needed and avoid overfertilising (lots of food makes a plant thirsty!). That way your plants will have the best chance to grow and thrive into summer.
It is exciting to get closer to Christmas and we look forward to sharing this time with friends and family. One of the best places to share this time is on the patio. Patio gardens are a fantastic way to brighten this common space, and there are plenty of options to choose from with Australian native plants.
We wish you a safe and joyful festive season, with plenty of time with friends and family... and of course gardening too. Ross, Jackie, Alec and the team at Zanthorrea.

Wishing you a safe and joyful Christmas!
We have some special Grevilleas bred by Kings Park that are now out for sale: Grevillea 'Pink Profusion' (Left), Grevillea 'Kimberley Moon' (Middle), Grevillea 'Outback Sunrise' (Right), Grevillea 'Scarlet Moon' and Grevillea 'Showtime'. Give us a call if you would like one put aside. Stock is limited.

10th of October: Spring Wildflower Time

What a wonderful season of wildflowers this spring. A trip to Kings Park Botanic Gardens is rewarded with inspiration and entices the enthusiast to venture out to explore wildflower country. Many of the wildflowers you find can also be grown at home, and we have some terrific plants growing on in our production area that will be ready soon.

Also in stock is the Wollemi Pine, one of the genetically oldest plants around today. It existed back when the dinasaurs were around! We find these trees make a stunning feature in a nice pot, in a protected position. Trees can have male and female cones.

3rd of September: Spring is Here!

Spring is here and it is going to be an excellent season of wildflowers. We have had some very welcome additional rain to the start of spring, as winter was below average. At Zanthorrea our display gardens are looking fantastic and we have plenty of nice plants becoming available in the next month or so.

Happy spring gardening!

Kangaroo Paws are looking fantastic at this time of year!


Opening Hours: 9am-5:30pm,
Every day except closed on Christmas Day.

What's looking good!


Summer is a good time for the showey fan flowers of Scaevola 'Crinkle Cut'. They suit tumbling over a rockery, or also make a delightful hanging basktet.

Save the Date: Garden Releaf Day 2021, Sunday March 21. Pending restrictions easing.
