Here are some ideas for native plants that provide colour and interest in smaller gardens. Some places to visit to see a range of native plants are Cranbourne and Melton Botanic Gardens. The Hoffman Walk at Lara is also worth a visit. In spring there will be a number of native flower shows, that showcase what grows well in local gardens. Lookout for the Pomonal and Ballarat events.
While several plants and parts of plants in my garden are dying, there is still some flowers appearing. This garden relies more on foliage colour and contrast rather than flowers to add interest. I managed to plant about 100 of my home grown plants over the long weekend.
