I LOVE GYMEA LILLIES!!! -Doryanthes excelsa - extraordinary plant to come across in the bush when it's in full bloom.

Furcraea foetida to replace the agaves, softer, no pups but still has the architectural shape we are looking for.

Gymea Lily

Australian native plant growing to 8 metres, perfect for large, tropical themed gardens.

Through blending a variety of foliage forms and colours from a palette of native and exotic plants you can create the themed style of garden you most enjoy spending time in. Here Gymea Lillies and Franjipannis invite you to meander up the garden path to sit in the shade of this tropical styled garden.

The selection and placement of plants with different leaf shapes, size and color can create the point of interest in a garden outside of the primary flowering seasons.
