Low hedging plants

Easy-care plants for low hedging borders. 

Nandina ‘Flirt’

‘FLIRT’ is a dwarf groundcover Nandina producing red new growth throughout Spring, Autumn and Summer. White flowers appear in Spring. 

Use as a ground cover, low hedge or a feature in full sun to moderate shade position. It is very drought, humidity and cold tolerant, growing well all over Australia.

Prune every few years if desired. Works in free-draining to heavy clay soils.

 

Nadina ‘Lemon and Lime’

Nandina ‘Lemon and Lime’ has a compact, evergreen form and tight habit. With stunning lime green foliage and an explosion of lemon tones year-round, this Nandina is extremely versatile and tolerant of frosty conditions and full sun planting.

 

 

Acacia ‘Limelight’

Acacia ‘Limelight’ is a compact native shrub with outstanding lime green, pendulous foliage all year round. Dry tolerant and hardy, it will grow in full sun or part shade in most well-drained soils or pots. Feed with Searles Robust Native Fertiliser. Tolerates light frosts.

 

Dianella ‘Little Jess’

Dianella ‘Little Jess’ is a dwarf with short, upright canes producing masses of purple flowers during Spring to early Summer.

Plant in full sun and moderate to heavy shade. Tolerates drought, humidity and frost. Easy to care for.

 

Agapanthus ‘Baby Pete’

Many Agapanthus are quick to self-seed and as such this genus is often listed as an invasive weed, quickly escaping into neighbouring reserves and bushland. A big bonus with the dwarf ‘Baby Pete’ is that it is a sterile variety that doesn’t set seed so there is no need to worry about upsetting native habitats. 20cm H x 40cm W. 

 

 

Dwarf Bamboo ‘Whitestripe’

Dwarf Whitestripe displays crisp green and white variegated foliage. Will flush back denser and fresher when trimmed down regularly.

 

Coprosma ‘Ignite’

Plant an ‘Ignite’ for an intense deep red foliage in Summer and warming purple tones in Winter. Extremely glossy, vibrant leaves. Dry tolerant and hardy.

Plant in a full sun to part shade position. Ideal colourful feature plant for mixed garden beds, informal borders and large containers.

Plant in a well-drained soil of Searles Premium Garden Soil. Low maintenance with no special care requirements. Very dry tolerant once established.
