About a year ago I planted a number of native plants in my garden and they have been thriving. I was pleasantly surprised to find some of them flowered prolifically over winter providing some much needed food for the native honeyeaters.
WINTER DELIGHT A low growing shrub, grevillea hybrid.
PINKY PETITE A groundcover grevillea
BONNIE PRINCE CHARLIE A compact shrub grevillea
PINK PIXIE A small sprawling shrub grevillea
FIREWORKS Hybrid grevillea shrub
CORREA MINI MARVEL A compact shrub version of Correa Marian’s Marvel
WESTRINGIA JERVIS GEM A native rosemary
PIG FACE A groundcover succulent with the most intense orange flowers I’ve ever seen!
But I am most impressed with this native plant that flowered for the first time over winter and looks amazing!
SCARLET SPRITE A dense and spiky shrub grevillea
And here is what makes it worthwhile having a native garden – I finally managed to capture a video of a wattlebird drinking the nectar of the grevillea flowers.
