Want to get a work out while cutting the grass? Reel lawn mowers are an eco-friendly alternative to gas-powered rotary models and a true boon to energy conservation. Reel lawn mowers are muscle-powered, so there's no engine involved. Using them not only promotes energy conservation but also clean air.
Feature Tree: Kurrajong Bottle Tree (Brachychiton populneus)
Indigenous to Australia, it can reach up to 40' x 30'. It takes little water once established. It can be sensitive to Texas Root Rot. Bell shaped cream flowers, spotted on the inside, are produced in masses in the late spring. They are followed by brown pods containing seeds that are covered with stiff hairs that penetrate the skin like glochids (the prickly pear's small spines). They should be handled with caution. Available in 15G & 24" BX.
Feature Plant: Lantana(Lantana spp.)
A genus of about 150 species of perennial flowering plants, native to tropical regions of the Americas, Africa and existing as an imported plant in numerous areas. The aromatic flower clusters (called umbels) are a mix of red, orange, yellow, or blue and white florets. Other colors exist as new varieties are being selected. The flowers typically change color as they mature, resulting in inflorescences that are two or three colored. The shrub forms are L. camara, whereas the trailing varieties are L. montevidensis. They are low water use & hardy, but are frost sensitive & should be covered with Frost Blanket in winter. Available in 1 & 5G. On sale-30% off regular retail!!
Feature Plant: Fortnight Lily (Dietes bicolor)
A clump-forming rhizomatous perennial with long sword-like pale-green leaves, growing from multiple fans at the base of the clump. This species belongs to the Iris family. It can form large clumps if left undisturbed for years. This species is common in horticulture in its native South Africa. The blooms are yellow with three dark purple spots, each surrounded by an orange outline, and are followed by a capsule that may bend the flower stalks to the ground. Ripe seeds (dark brown in color) are dispersed when the capsule dries and splits. It's a moderate water user & can grow in full sun. Available in 1 & 5G.
