Viola Labradorica Alpine Violet is a low clumping perennial violet that has small purple - green foliage and develops violet coloured flowers during the Spring and Summer months of the year. We have had Alpine Violets flower in the garden all throughout the year here in Monbulk, they are easy to grow and provide plenty of colour to shady areas of the garden.
Alpine Violet will grow up to 20cms tall by 45cms wide in semi shade to full shade, in moist well drained soils and needs to be protected from full sun, drying out and frosts.
Alpine Violet as mentioned above is ideal for areas of full shade with dampness and grows very well, providing an attractive carpet of foliage colour and flowers under trees and other plantings.
Boronia Megastigma Jack Maguires Red is a small evergreen Australian native shrub with fine aromatic foliage. During the Winter and Spring months, this Boronia bears a profusion of burgundy red, bell like flowers which are highly fragrant, one of the most exquisite perfumes you will smell, Chanel, would love to bottle this fragrance, its that good.... if anybody speaks to her, let her know i can hook her up with some stock !!
Jack Mac, can grow 1 metre tall by 1 metre wide in full shade to part shaded gardens in cool to moist, well drained soils. Keep Jack Mac moist over the summer months and don't allow to dry out during the hottest part of the year, mulch well around to ensure the roots are cool and make sure there is plenty of airflow, so that it doesn't rot in the winter months.
Jack Mac is ideal for native gardens, rockeries, containers / pots and the flowers can be cut and used for indoors and decoration, to enjoy that exquisite fragrance.
