Hybrid Waratahs
Hybrid waratahs have proven to be hardier and more reliable than the Sydney waratah.
Plants have multiple flowers rather than a single flowering stem.

All you need is a well drained position with some shade and protected from westerly sun and wind. Mulch them well and water regularly during the warmer months. Several hybrids flower in both autumn and spring giving double the pleasure.

Shady Lady Collection

Best known of all the waratah hybrids, the Shady Lady collection is grown and marketed by Proteaflora in Melbourne. There are five colour forms but the pink form is often not available.  All  plants are suited to temperate conditions.
Plants are sold in 140mm pots and special growing instructions are sent with all sales.
They will be available in early March.

Alloxylon pinnatum
Dorrigo Waratah

Alloxylon pinnatum



H. Up to 10m  Fl. Spring - Summer     Rare
Rainforest tree with large shiny leaves and large pinkish red flower clusters. Frost tender when young. Prefers well-drained deep soils in semi-shade. Coastal gardens, around pools, near house, specimen.

These plants were propagated from seed collected in a garden in the Southern Highlands and have survived a winter in a shadehouse in Armidale. They are more cold tolerant than coastal forms and would be suited to Blue Mountains or coastal gardens. They like similar conditions to other waratahs.  They are rarely offered for sale.

Actinotus helianthi
Flannel Flowers

Actinotus helianthi

Best grown in groups
of three.
These iconic Australian plants are rarely available in the nursery trade due to the difficulty of propagating them. We've now had a few breakthroughs and are able to offer limited numbers of plants in tubes.

Although they usually only live for 3 years they do self-sow in the garden so once planted you should have them coming up year after year particularly if you mulch that part of the garden with fine gravel.  For a show-stopping display, plant three together in a medium sized terracotta pot (about 30 - 40 cm deep). Cover the hole with some flywire then cover the flywire with some scoria gravel.  Fill with a native potting mix and mulch over the top with fine gravel. I like using small white quarz chips.  Pots need to be on a stand that allows free drainage. These amazing plants flower just about all year round in milder climates and during the warmer months in cold climates. They need very little attention apart from trimming back the stems after they finish flowering. Be sure to leave a few to set seed. They are moderately frost hardy and I would recommend you put them in a sheltered position like a covered verandah in winter. Fertilise with blood and bone in spring and keep the soil moist but not wet

Full sun position - keep leaves dry if possible - use a dripper for watering. Plants will survive more than one season in mild conditions. Fertilise with slow release native granules. Not suitable for humid coastal conditions.
