Tea tree ….I think – it grew without any intervention from me ( apart from keeping weeds at bay)

    Is that a woolly Grevillea (Grevillea lanigera)? The leaves look like mine, but mine hasn’t flowered yet. I hope I don’t have to wait nine years for it to do so! I just walked up to look at the plant and the flowers on the label look just like yours.

    Hi Nada!
    How beautiful!! I have only recently planted a whole lot of natives in the front yard. I am really looking forward to them growing up!
    I think the wattle is Acacia elongata at a guess…Hardenbergia is my all time favourite native (but all my flowers blew off in the wind)

    Kathy: I think you might be right, although the leaves are not woolly but there is some variation in the plant. http://farrer.csu.edu.au/ASGAP/g-lan.html

    Ours is the prostrate version and it took so long to flower because of the long, slow and expensive process of removing radiata pines, holly and cherry laurels – all were both moisture and light thieves.

    Helen: I love Hardenbergia too. I checked the local plant books and you win the prize…it is A.elongata….Swamp Wattle. Congratulations.

    Linda: Can’t you console yourself with copious amounts of gardening catalogues? Sigh!
