I do love colour. This grove in the north east ‘goes off’ in spring with Grevillea ‘Moonlight’, Chamelaucium uncinatum ‘CWA Pink’, Anigozanthos ‘Bush Pizazz’, Grevillea ‘Jennifer Joy’, Callistemon spp. and Leptospermum ‘Cardwell’

Perched on the top of a windswept hill in the Hunter Valley, this Australian native garden started with some lofty goals: to offer beautiful views from the house;

Layered naturalistic plants with vivid drought tolerant plantings–like red pencil trees, toyon, and 4 different types of sage that appear as though they’ve always been a part of the terrain.

Colorful plant palette – drought tolerant plantings – low water – shadow play (tall one with red flowers is Kangaroo Paw--Anigozanthos flavidus) ¡\/\/\/\!

Camberwell, Victoria. Phillip Johnson landscapes. Vertical sleepers.

I think that this picture illustrates just how well these period homes lend themselves to Australian native gardens.
