Happy National Tree Day!
National Tree day is an opportunity to do something positive for your local environment and community and to reconnect with nature. Since it began in 1996 more than 3.8 million people have planted 23 million trees and plants and it's still growing!

To celebrate National Tree Day we are having a "Plant of the Week" and it is one of our favourites...
Let us introduce you to: Waterhousea Floribunda, also known as WEEPING LILLY PILLY!

  • Long, dark green glossy leaves which turn red before dropping. A few red leaves are always visible.

  • Bunches of hard, round fruit with a green with a pinkish tinge.
  • Withstands full sun and light frost in cool climates. Plant in any well drained soil and keep well watered during warm weather.
  • A great specimen or shade tree for suburban gardens and parklands.
