Boronia Purple Jared, like Boronia Heterophylla Pink, is also in my opinion, one of the toughest of the Boronia range ... fragrant foliage and fragrant Purple flowers, and much hardier than its sooky relatives brown boronia, yellow boronia and some of the white varieties
Boronia Purple Jared is an upright Australian Native, bushy evergreen shrub with narrow dark green fragrant foliage, with a mass of fragrant Dark Purple flowers in the late winter to spring months.
Purple Jared Boronia, will grow up to 1.5 metres tall, by 1 metre wide ( can grow larger if really happy), loves cooler climates, tolerates light frosts, is best planted in moist, but well drained soils in a dappled shaded garden.
Pink Boronia is ideal for shady gardens, screening/hedges, shrubberies and also in pots and containers. It can also be used for cut flowers.
Lightly prune after flowering to promote and maintain new bushy compact growth and fertilise once per year with a good quality native fertiliser,
Primula Acaulis are a small growing ANNUAL POTTED COLOUR PLANT that flower from early July right up to November, giving you vibrant dwarf primrose like blooms in striking colours ranging from white, red, pink, purple, mauve, blue, yellow and orange.
Also commonly referred to as Polyanthus, they grow great in pots, bowls, baskets, borders or just as a mass planting of winter colour in a garden bed.
Primula Acaulis grow 12cm tall by 12 cm wide and prefer humus, moist, well drained soil in a part shade position.
As a flower finishes, just snip it off to open up space for the buds underneath to come through and flower. Regular liquid feeding with a seaweed solution will help to keep these beauties flowering for long periods throughout the winter months
At Paddys Plants we have Primulas available from late May until August..... unless sold out !! Currently we buy them as mixed seed, so we never know what colours we might get, so if you would like specific colours, you will have to come into nursery.... in years to come we will advertise straight colours.
Hydrangea are a deciduous shrub with green foliage and large rounded flower heads throughout the summer months.
Hydrangea can grow between 50cms tall and 2 metres tall , by the same dimensions in width, depending on variety, health, happiness of location and maintenance or care. Hydrangeas can easily be kept to required heights and widths with regular pruning and manipulating.
Hydrangeas Prefer dappled shade all day or morning sun, but protection from the hot afternoon sun and winds and will thrive in moist, well drained soils.
Hydrangea are great for pots and containers, shaded gardens, borders or informal hedges for a dramatic and brilliant show of flowers during the summer months and the flowwers can be used for flower arrangements and are great either fresh or dried.
Soil pH will not change the colour of White Hydrangeas.
