The first signs of Spring

Posted by

Spring is here and if you live in SE Queensland, you are forgiven for thinking that we've actually skipped Winter this year.

In the nursery our Ornithogalum dubiums were the first to flower (also called Sun Star of Bethlehem).  You might be more familiar with their relatives Ornithogalum arabicum (also called Arabian star flower, Arabs eye, or Black Pearl Lily).  They are really eye catching and don't mind the hot dry weather we've been having.  We won't have any for sale this year, but should have enough by next Spring.  We love that they are repeat flowering and each flower lasts for a long time.

Our favourite green clivia has also flowered already - it usually flowers twice each season.  Last season it produced about 50 seeds - all are tiny seedlings now.

If you want to visit our nursery this Spring, please come along to one of our plant sale days.  More information is on the Visiting Our Nursery page of our website.
