    Default What are you absolute favourite of all time plants? I need inspiration.

    At the moment I am completely in love with butterfly bush, any kind of flowering fruit trees and japanese maples.

    But I need some more ideas because I have 5 butterfly bushes already!

    I love mock oranges (moraya? Really have no idea how to spell it, so I'll stick with mock orange) and gardenias.

    Also flowering cherry or peach trees are beautiful late winter.

    And bulbs, anything in bulb form

    Ooohhh yes. Mock Oranges are beautiful - the scent is stunning. They won't tolerate a hard frost apparently? I love bulbs too

    No they're not good in frost, but if you put them in a protected spot - getting afternoon sun, but not morning sun - then they'll be fine.

    Thanks so much, I have some really protected spots with lots of arvo sun, so I might give it a try. Worst that can happen is that it dies, and honestly - they is kind of normal for me growing things anyway

    Murraya! Mine only gets morning sun and it's ok.
    Good choices ladies, also I think gardenia is a fantastic choice.
    Lavender is quite hardy too.

    I love lavender, I've planted 4 and only one is surviving. Go me!

    I saw these when we were down the coast, I think they look lovely as well. I think I may have a thing for shrubs.

    I planted 3 butterfly bushes in April and between them they've had 23 babies!
    I love agapanthus, rhoeo (Moses in a basket), mock orange, gardenia, Chinese star jasmine, nodding violets, peace lilies, maidenhair ferns, and agave, New Guinea impatiens.
    I love rainforest style gardens and all white gardens that have highly scented flowers.

    How did yours have babies? Mine don't do that? I only just realised today that I am supposed to prune them, they are looking fairly ragging and woody..
