Small Colourful Australian Shrubs for our Garden
I'm planning on gradually buying the list of small colourful Australian shrubs offered by Linda Niemann from State Flora I heard on one of the gardening programs on the ABC gardening program in late July.
Although the list was for small gardens, most of the plants suited areas with some shade and would work well in our garden as all the larger shrubs are in place. What we really need are hardy small shrubs and groundcovers.
