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 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,
Epipremnum Aureum, Jade Pothos, or often referred to as Devils Ivy, is the true form of Devils Ivy and is a lush, climbing or trailing, tropical plant with attractive glossy, green marbled with gold, heart shaped leaves and is a tough hardy plant for hanging baskets or totem poles in pot for inside your home to help purify the air.
In Victoria, Devils Ivy should be grown indoors in a well lit position of indirect natural light, in a position that is warm, keep the soil moist, or cool to touch, not too wet or it will rot, responds well to regular misting spray of water ( 3 or 4 times a week) on foliage and also responds well to a liquid feed once per month, for best health, growth and results.
Devils Ivy prefers partial sunlight for decks & patios, it does not like direct hot sun and will grow great outdoors during the warmer months, but bring it back inside the home where it is best suited During the cooler months
