Fabulous flowers

These prominent and fuzzy buds on our Magnolia stellata, are just starting to open to reveal delicate pink and white petals.


A new out of season flower on our Kangaroo Paw plant gives a glimpse of spring.


The Ardisia crenata which has been recently planted in the garden after years in a pot, seems to be thriving. A new crop of seedlings are growing nearby from the fallen berries.


Some newly planted potted colour are starting to spread and will create a nice display.

Magnolia stellata

Magnolia stellata, sometimes called the star magnolia, is a slow-growing shrub or small tree native to Japan.  It has beautiful star-shaped flowers in early spring, these are followed by light green leaves.  This magnolia is perfect for our small garden, it has doubled in size over the past five years and is now about 2 metres tall.
