  • Rose of Sharon

    Rose of Sharon Seed

    Hypericum calycinum

    Rose of Sharon is a dwarf evergreen shrub with large leathery leaves and golden flowers with long stamens all summer. It is an excellent ground-cover plant, suckering generously if kept shaded but can get a little out of control in full sun! Bits can be pulled up occasionally, and old stems chopped down, but otherwise doesn’t need much attention.

  • Silver Wattle

    Silver Wattle

    Acacia dealbata

    Silver Wattle or Mimosa is a loose growing, small open evergreen tree or large shrub. It has ferny grey green leaves and scented yellow pompom flowers,  in the winter and early spring.

Mimosa can be grown outside in the southwest and on the south coast, but still really needs shelter.
