Summer Gardens

The greatest weakness in Australian gardens is our focus on spring, when summer is when we really have time to enjoy it

An amazing colour palette of perennials, including Agastache 'Aztec Rose', Crocosmia 'Citronella', Echinops and Russian Sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia).

Tips for growing perennials

1. Group plants by flowering season. Don't mix spring and summer flowering perennials together.

2. Arrange the colour combinations you like, but be sure to use contrasting foliage and height to avoid 'mounding monotony'.

3. Trim off spent flowers to prolong the flowering season.
