  Convolvulus Moroccan Beauty

A new, very dense and compact form of this universally popular ground cover often utilised for low maintenance areas or simply as an ornate filler in beds/borders. Masses of soft lavender blue flowers are freely produced from late spring through to autumn. If sited accordingly, it will trail over rocks, embankments, retaining walls etc. Equally useful for covering bare patches in mixed borders or for container culture.

C . 'Moroccan Beauty' is ideal for 'no fuss' landscaping as well as those with limited space.


The genus Convolvulus encompases around two-hundred trailing perennials annuals, evergreen and deciduous shrubby plants. Most of these plants usually bear heart-shaped leaves and, in the summer, produce beautiful, funnel-shaped flowers. Convolvo means to entwine as most species found in this family are indeed twiners giving rise to their common name of Bindweeds. C. 'Moroccan Beauty', however, is far from a troublesome ground cover with a passive trailing habit that will not invade other garden specimens.

Another member of the family which makes a stunning planting partner for C. 'Moroccan Beauty' is C. 'Silvery Moon' (Convolvulus cneorum).This is a gorgeous bushy plant that boasts silvery, silky foliage. The white blossoms are larger than those of the ground covering 'Moroccan Beauty' and together they make an ideal display for year round interest and both are particularly dry tolerant once they become established.

  Salvia Heatwave Blast

A range of salvias aptly dubbed the ‘HEATWAVE’ range was introduced as a direct response to the current dry climate faced by Australian gardeners. Salvias are only too well know worldwide as a waterwise family of plants that revel in sunshine and dry, open soils.

The HEATWAVE range takes todays gardening requirements one step further being purposely bred to retain a compact habit as many forms of salvia greggii typically present with more open habits which, whilst still effective in the right position, relegate their use to background planting or intermingling in a loose perennial border.

The tighter foliage of the HEATWAVE salvias allows them to be a given more prominent location in a garden setting which they well deserve considering they provide colour all through the warmer months right through autumn.
