Fremontedendron, Ribes, and Leucospermum
The spring plant sale will feature two brand new releases from the Koala Blooms Plant Introduction Program. Banksia ericifolia 'Fireworks' is a striking evergreen shrub with needle like leaves. The large showy golden cones have red styles. It blooms winter through summer and makes a great cut flower. Dampiera trigona 'Purple Wire' is a perennial with nearly 1 inch blue violet flowers on wiry stems. It is best grown in a container, rock garden or hanging basket plant.
Dendromecon hardfordii or Island Bush Poppy is native to Santa Cruz and Santa Rosa Islands in California. It is an evergreen shrub with large bright showy yellow saucer shaped flowers. Its not an easily plant to propagate and is not readily available in nurseries. We were fortunate to have been able to grow these plants from seed.
