Lamium Maculatum or Beacon Silver is a mat forming perennial ground cover plant that has grey-green foliage with silver markings and bears clusters of hooded mauve/purple/pinkish flowers during the spring and summer months.
Beacon Silver grows well in full sun, but prefers part shade or filtered light positions in moist to well drained soils. I have used Beacon silver in heavy shade ( full shade) and it has performed well.
Beacon Silver will grow 15cms tall by up to 1 metre wide and is a fantastic ground cover for underneath trees or spilling over banks, pots and retaining walls. it also makes a great hanging basket.
Absolutely beautiful in flower in partial shaded areas and even when its not in flower the foliage is just as attractive on its own.
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,
