      Gazania ‘Lemon Soda’
      for $7.00earn 35 points

      An exceptional groundcover, the silver foliage flowing over hot, bare soil and amply furnished with 8cm wide, soft lemon, fully double, daisy-like flowers.
      Not to be confused with your everyday road verge Gazania, although Lemon Soda is equally as tough, this is a much more beautiful plant a must for every sunny garden and being fully double cannot self seed.

      Trim off spent flowers occasionally.


      Introduced to us via a keen gardener from Zimbabwe, who brought her favourite plants with her upon immigrating to Perth. We are ever grateful.

  • Hemerocallis

    (Daylilies)
    Xanthorrhoeaceae

    One of the worlds most popular garden plants, especially in the U.S. They are care free clump forming perennials with large beautiful flowers in a wide range of colours held over neat grass-like foliage. They are sensationally tough and are happy in just about any soil and climate found in Australia. They are also completely edible and in their native China are commonly consumed.

    We originally started growing and selling Daylilies in the eighties at one point having thousands of varieties and tens of thousands of plants in full production. They have large fleshy roots and are poorly suited to pot culture and so are traditionally sold bare rooted and establish very easily. While there was interest from the landscaping trade, some mass plantings can still be seen around Perth decades later, most gardeners in W.A. are conditioned to buying flowering plants in pots.

    We no longer maintain vast quantities nor keep up with the latest breeding developments, new varieties cost many hundreds of dollars. Instead we focus on choice varieties of outstanding garden merit. Many of these varieties are "old" and no longer popular and have almost ceased to exist. As with many plants modern breeding offers a fantastic array of flower colours and forms but there seems to be little regard to grace, habit and overall garden worthiness and most lack the elegance and charm of old favourites, tried and true.

    Daylilies do survive drought very well but will perform very poorly under such conditions and in our climate are perhaps not the most suitable plant for mass plantings but a large clump or two is easy enough to throw an occasional bucket of water on and will enrich any garden.

      The tight clumps of softly silver, sword shaped leaves, of this evergreen, sun loving perennial, are outstanding when combined with low mound forming plants like Dianthus, Sedum, Origanum and small growing winter bulbs. The slender spikes of soft lemon flowers, borne in spring, make this Chilean native indispensable in the garden.

      Good drainage is essential.

      Generally short lived, 3-4 years, but self sows nicely in well drained soil.
