A common problem with Australian garden is finding plants that will grow under gum trees. She oaks are also particularly difficult since they have horrible massive roots under them.
Don showed a range of plants that will cope with these conditions.
- Crowea saligna – pink wax flower (Aust. Native Birth Flower for May)
- Flannel Flowers (Actinotus helianthi)
- Clivias – clivias come from South Africa not Australia. They will cope well with conditions under gum trees. Clivias are particularly useful and intesting plants. For more information about them go to: www.burwoodclivianursery.com.au
