NEW CATALOGUE ENTRIES are indicated by •
We apologise for the delay in adding new varieties to this page. Recent orders have taken most of the available plants
but we have taken advantage of the cool moist early part of the season to propagate a good selection of different species
and these will be added as they become ready in a few months.
All stock has been nursery propagated and cultivated.
ACIPHYLLA simplex $9.00

Well-lit but cool aspect, free-draining soil.
