Featuring Western Australian Red PokersOne more SALE DAY in..... My feature plant for today is the Red Poker or Hakea bucculenta.
If I had to recommend a reliable 2.5 m windbreak species for banksia sandplain areas around Geraldton this would be my pick.
This magnificent showy shrub is native to the Geraldton region.
We used these shrubs within our windbreak systems over 25 years ago and they have proven to be reliable, tough and fast growing. They love neutral sandplain areas where Banksias used to grow like the Geraldton suburbs of Waggrakine, Moresby, White peak and Strathalbyn.

We have 10% off our last 50 plants, so be quick as they are in flower at the moment and selling fast. $5.00 each now. . Try this link for more images florabase.dpaw.wa.gov.au/browse/profile/2135

Our Sale ends Sunday 27th September.

Open Thursday to Sunday 10am -5.00pm

This coastal plant from WA is something else.

Hot specials....Our Tubestock sale has officially began today. One of our highlight plants belongs to Calothamnus genus, these are commonly known as the 1/2 sided bottlebrushes or Clawflowers.
It is quite unbelievable that plants that grow naturally on white sandplain can produce such vibrant displays of flowers with no water, fertiliser or any help from humans.
If you look carefully at the stamens in the flower you can see why they are called clawflowers. It is so interesting how nature replicates patterns in both animal and plants.
There are 41 species of Calothamus in WA of which only a few are commercially available. This "Witcherina form" of Calothamnus quadrifidus grows approximately 1.5 - 2m high and is one of the heaviest flowering forms I have seen. If you want to introduce a little uniqueness into your garden, here is a great species to try. The Murchison Clawflower.

We have Clawflower tubestock on special. (normally $5.50.) Now with a 20% discount for individual plants or if you want a hedge of them "6 for the price of 4", our super deal)
If you want to see them in flower at the moment, take a look along our road verge.
Open 10.00am -5.00pm Thursday to Sunday.
