A hardy dwarf native growing to approximately 80cm high and 1m wide. Vibrant green foliage creates a soft compact mound. A valuable addition to any modern garden or landscape, the fine foliage adds texture and a softening effect to the garden.
Golf Ball is a vigorous grower, yet stays very compact and round with little pruning. Branching freely from its base, it develops a very dense, multi-stemmed shape. It has bright mint-green glossy leaves with small, inconspicuous chocolate-purple flowers in late spring/early summer. This evergreen specimen is low maintenance, staying around 50cm tall x 50cm wide.
A dwarf Cordyline growing only 1m x 1m with a compact habit. It has glossy dark chocolate broad leaves upto 1m long that weep with age giving the plant a very smart look. This is complemented by strongly scented cream coloured flowers that are borne from many panicles above the foliage. A great architectual plant for all modern gardens. Makes an excellent feature plant and looks fantastic in a decorative pot.
A stunning selection of Lomandra with dark blue-grey foliage and a graceful weeping habit. During summer highly fragrant small yellow blooms appear that laden the air with a sweet aroma. Non-invasive and easy to maintain, ideal for patio pots, rockeries and border perimeters. Creates a softening effect by covering harsh edges that are common amongst modern designs. Mass plantings give a wonderful seaside or mediterranean feel to gardens, simulating a rippling ocean surface as the foliage is moved about in the breeze.
