Very excited to have a decent SLR camera finally! Also very excited about the flowers of my Nicotiana suavolens - Native Tobacco. It has big leaves in a basal roseate that shoot up this lovely flower spikes. Hardy and tolerant of drier sites, it’s a fantastic plant for balcony planters in a northerly aspect. Suitable plants I’ve found are Pelragonium australe, Isotoma axillaris, Themada triandra, Disphyma crassifolium and Wahlenbergia communis. Collectively they form a lovely cottage-esque effect and is a great dry tolerant mix for full sun. #plantsofinstagram #australiannativeplants #collingwood #nativetobacco
Conditions on my balcony are perfect for growing flannel flowers and kangaroo paws. Coupled with the eucalypts, complete with birdsong in the adjacent reserve, it makes for a peaceful place to just be. . . . . . #australiannatives #australiannative #flannelflowers #flannelflower #australiannativeflowers #flowers #balconygarden #balconygardening #urbangarden #sydney #australia #kangaroopaw #newingtonsydney #sydneylocal #urbangarden #australianflora #australiannativeplants #australianflowers #nativeflowers #flowerphotography #blossoms
Splendid spread of King Orchids in Budawang National Park. These lovely Aussie orchids grow both in the branches of rainforest trees and on sandstone outcrops in the bush.

Mountain Bells: As a collective, the larger flowering species of Darwinias found in south west Western Australia are known as Mountain Bells including the one in this photo which is known as the Craberry Bell (Darwinia meeboldi). The genus was named by Botanist Edward Rudge in honour of botanist, philosopher and free thinker Dr Erasmus Darwin ( grandfather of Charles Darwin). At left in the photo is the way the flowers hang on the bush while the two at right have been ‘turned’ to show the eight tiny flowers protected by the showy bracts. The Cranberry Bell like many of its cousins is on the Threatened species list. These ‘belles’ of the south west are a privilege to view and are found in that natural wonder known as the Stirling Range National Park. #natureaustralia #australiannativeplants #naturephotography #flowerstagram #flowerpower 🌸 #flower_igers #flowerphotography #australiannative
Spring Oct 2018. Finally prepping the blank canvas for the front yard start over. Most of the rubble and surface weed growth cleared but needs a bit more levelling. Earth is getting harder to work as the season continues to warm and getting late for trouble free planting. Struggling with removing the remnants of the cursed old #weedmat otherwise known as #landscapefabric , which is snagged with dirt, heavy clay and weeds! Instead, the new beds will be prepared using cardboard sheet mulching. Aiming for an Australian natives cottage-style landscaping dominated by grass-like and bushy flowering #perenials . Still tossing ideas for a draft design, mindful of the southern aspect at the front of the property. This was taken mid-afternoon. (I saved the lonesome #agaveattenuata by potting it up #willikeepit 😇) #frontyardlandscaping #frontyardgarden #renovation #frontyard #australiannatives #australiannativeplants #australiannativegarden #frontyardlandscaping #frontyardmakeover #skyvillea #skyvillean #bestofthewest
Myoporum platycarpum.🌿 Sugarwood, false sandalwood and ngural. Native to southern Australia. Rounded shrub or small tree up to 10m. The long narrow leaves are covered with small raised wart-like tubercles and are finely serrated along the edge. The flowers are white or pale pink to purple and sometimes spotted orange or yellow inside. The hard dense wood is perfect for furniture making and smells of sugar when it’s being worked. 🍭 A beautiful looking small tree and very attractive for nectar birds and insects. The flowers were weighing down the branches which gave it a weeping willow affect swaying in the breeze. One for my list! . . #myoporum #sugarwood #redhill #vicflora #myoporumplatycarpum #ozplant #australiannativeplants #ellipticleaf #prettyflowers #nectar
It is so nice to feel the weather warming and native spring flowers bursting open. This very pretty potted pair has been flowering for the last 6 weeks.....a combination of a local Mount Rumney daisy grown from seed collected up the hill with far flung Stylidium adnantum from Esperence WA, which is one of the hardiest and long flowering plants in our garden. I have seen a coral flowering version. We have many of the indigenous sprawling Clematis dotted throughout the garden, which is another favourite. Waiting for emerging grassland lilies to flower..... . . #spring #nativeflowers #australiannativeplants #purpledaisy #stylidium #clematis #hobart #tasmania #tasmaniangarden

My Grass Trees are flowering. These Australian natives, Xanthorrhea australis are growing naturally in the local area. They are slow growing but when they throw up a flower spike it happens amazingly quickly. #grasstree #australia #australiannativeplants #thebush #nativebirds #parrots #birdfood #biodiversity #shoalhaven #southcoastnsw #mygarden #gardens #gardening #gardeners #coastal #sea #salt #sand #onthebeach

Interesting little plant often growing in rock ledges - Skeleton Fork-fern (Psilotum nudum). A fern-like plant that lacks roots. #sydneynatives #sydneyflowers #sydneybushlands #sydneynativeplants #australiannativeplants #australiannatives #orkfern #hornsbyheights #hornsbyshire #berowravalley #berowravalleynationalpark #psilotum

Bracteantha, you might know as Paper Daisy, is a beautiful and tough native plant that will reward you with a stunning show of flowering. They come in a range of colours and are looking their best right now 🌻 #bracteantha #paperdaisy #daisy #native #australiannative #australiannativeplants #australia #melbourne #gardenworldnursery #tuesday #plantsofinstagram #colour #plantlife #spring #garden #gardening #tough #waterwise
I wouldn't be putting this one in the 'L.Y.P.F.' (little yellow pea flower) file. It gets to be a decent sized shrub and the flowers a larger than the norm. #Oxylobium #robustum or the common name is the Golden shaggy pea. #australiannativeplants #wildflowers #australiannative #goldenshaggypea

I’m always pleased seeing indigenous plants embraced in suburban gardens. Whether or not planting local species was deliberate, this is “rewilding” and I would argue what should be the starting point for horticulture as a hobby. Today I noticed this Native Violet (Viola hederacea, possibly banksii) spreading nicely over a small retaining wall out the front of an apartment. This species loves moisture-retentive soils, part-shade, and will spread as a groundcover given the opportunity. I think the best thing about this plant is that it is edible, both flowers and foliage! Consequently, you will find cultivars in both the ornamental natives section of your local nursery and the herb section. The species is found naturally all along the east coast of Australia, and should be considered for damp areas of your garden.
Fresh from the mosaics Logs factory line in preparation for the exhibition. Little blue wren on a very interesting log....the bark seems to frame the mosaic. Commission done with Briare enamels on mesh. #mosaiconlogs #mosaic_art #mosaic #mosaicart #bluewren #bluewrenart #australiannativeplants
I love a good epiphyte. Tongue orchid (Dockrilla linguiformis) #orchid #australiannativeplants #epiphyte #nativeplant
