ONCE A MONTH WE WILL HIGHLIGHT A PLANT THAT IS BOTH SUITABLE AND STYLISH FOR THE TRADITIONAL AUCKLAND GARDEN. THIS MONTH OUR PLANT IS : 

Mazus reptans : Creeping mazus

As a designer, I am constantly looking for inspiration within the plant world that can spark a culmination of design ideas. This low lying beauty forms as a wonderful ground cover to create a colourful garden blanket. Native to the Himalayan region of Asia, the Mazus  can offer a touch of subtle tone and drama to your designer garden. Preferring part shade to full sun, this little gem will transform those areas of the garden needing a little inspiration.
