Great this Month

  Abelia Kaleidoscope

First discovered by Randy Lindsey (Propagator at Panoramic Farm USA) as a sport on the well known Abelia × grandiflora ‘Little Richard’ . A. 'Kaleidoscope' carries with it all the wonderful attributes of it parent - dense, compact growth habit with a high foliage retention during the dormant winter months. The really stand out attraction of 'Kaleidoscope', however, is the dynamic color it brings to the garden landscape.

New, variegated growth emerges as bright yellow with a light green centre throughout spring gradually turning to golden yellow with deeper green markings into the summer months intensifying in colour rather than bleaching from long, hot summer days.

By autumn this combination turns to a bright orange to fiery red throughout the winter months extending until the early spring. These colours are further highlighted by the brilliant red stems and the abundance of dainty white flowers first appearing in summer.

Exceptionally easy to grow and maintain once established, this versatile shrub will serve many purposes in both commercial and home garden schemes.

  Salvia Heatwave Blaze

A range of salvias aptly dubbed the ‘HEATWAVE’ range was introduced as a direct response to the current dry climate faced by Australian gardeners. Salvias are only too well know worldwide as a waterwise family of plants that revel in sunshine and dry, open soils.

The HEATWAVE range takes todays gardening requirements one step further being purposely bred to retain a compact habit as many forms of salvia greggii typically present with more open habits which, whilst still effective in the right position, relegate their use to background planting or intermingling in a loose perennial border.

The tighter foliage of the HEATWAVE salvias allows them to be a given more prominent location in a garden setting which they well deserve considering they provide colour all through the warmer months right through autumn.
