Camellia sasanqua season is upon us. This is ‘Hiryu’.
These group of camellias will grow in full sun and semi-shade. They like an acidic soil, so use a camellia and azalea planting mix at planting and or add peat moss to the soil. And be sure to mulch well and water consistently for the first 2 seasons. #camellia #sasanqua #acidlovers #shrubs #autumn #floweringnow #flowers #slightlyscented #flowers #brisbane #brisbanegardens #camellias #screening #pots #shrubbery #clairesgoodlife

Not all plants are made equal, but Consolida ajacis specifically is a great bee plant if you are looking for one

Formerly known as Delphinium ambiguum and commonly known as Larkspur is a good pollen plant for honeybees. "[Native to the] Mediterranean. Ornamental with finely-divided featherly leaves. Flower colours traditionally blue, but hybrids in shades of mauve, pink and white. The nectar in the long flower spur cannot be reached by honeybees - perhaps with a strong nectar flow? Pollen light brownish-yellow. The similar-looking Delphinium hybrids have the same beesplant value." (Johannsmeier, M. F. (2016). Beeplants of South Africa: Sources of Nectar, Pollen, Honeydew and Propolis for Honeybees)

Also known as Ridderspoor in Afrikaans; 飞燕草 in Chinese; Valse ridderspoor in Dutch; Tarhakukonkannus in Finnish; Dauphinelle des jardins in French; Esporinha in Portuguese; respectively.

Always love the lovely larkspurs. And did you know that this delightful flowering annual will happily grow and flower in the subtropics. True. Buy them and plant them as seedlings now and you’ll have blooms winter and spring. Note: they come in blue, purple, pink and white. #larkspur #annual #flowers #flowering #beefodder #blueskies #cutflower #butterflies #posie #gardening #autumngardens #brisbane #brisbanegardens #subtropics #clairesgoodlife
