The garden of Ian Cox in Kenthurst.
Thanks to Ian for allowing us to visit his beautiful garden, seamlessly integrated with the surrounding bush.
What's in bloom - November 2018
The Kangaroo Paws (Anigozanthos) have been later to flower this year, possibly due to lack of rainfall, but they are now putting on a spectacular display, particularly when mass planted. These ones are located below a driveway and so they are revelling in the rain of the last month. Image Heather Miles
These self-seeded Flannel Flowers (Actinotis helianthi) have burst into flower. They thrive on neglect and pop up under shrubs where the birds have been busy feeding. They grow naturally in sandy or well drained soils. These ones are on a slight rise beside the front steps, under the grevillea! Image: Heather Miles
A row of this small tea tree, Leptospermum 'Merinda' creates dazzling colour in October and November each year, with the shrub completely covered with small bright pink flowers. Very easy plant to grow, though it likes a bit of moisture. Image Heather Miles
