ONCE A MONTH WE WILL HIGHLIGHT A PLANT THAT IS BOTH SUITABLE AND STYLISH FOR THE TRADITIONAL AUCKLAND GARDEN. THIS MONTH OUR PLANT IS :
Aubrieta Blue lilac :
Every now and then a design requires a delicate balance of colour and form to truly enhance a landscape. Pockets of colour and structure can draw the eye and subtly direct one around the garden. The Aubrieta Blue lilac is one such gem. This low forming perennial produces beautiful small spreading limbs which are very free flowering throughout the summer period. These delicate flowers are small in soft shades of lilac and blue, and prefers full sun to light shade to thrive. This welcome addition can provide a shot of eye catching colour to any Auckland designer garden.
