Purple Fusion™ Scaevola is a landscape groundcover

Purple Fusion™ Scaevola is a native low growing ground cover that gets masses of beautiful purple flowers for almost 365 days a year.

Purple Fusion™ Scaevola humilis 'PFS100' PBR

Purple Fusion™ Scaevola’s humilis parentage makes it a much tougher and drought tolerant plant, nothing like the weaker aemula species. It’s flat growth habit means that it will need less pruning than other Scaevola species to look great. The delicate fan like flowers will give interest for almost the whole year unless you get a heavy frost.

Purple Fusion™ Scaevola works all around Australia and grows only 20cm high with a spread of up to 1.5 metres. For a drought tolerant, flowering plant in full sun to part shade Purple Fusion™ Scaevola is a great choice that will give you interest for most of the year.

Blue Gem™ Westringia is a native shrub with vivid bluish-purple flowers

Blue Gem™ Westringia is a native shrub with vivid bluish-purple flowers and would have to be the best flowering Westringia plant I have ever seen.

BLUE GEM™ Westringia 'WES03'

Blue Gem™ Westringia produces masses of amazing bluish-purple coloured flowers which look like they have been coloured with a fluorescent highlighter. Not only does Blue Gem have brightly coloured flowers but it has very attractive bushy growth which responds well to pruning.

Blue Gem™ Westringia grows well in most soil types, and is an excellent choice for  coastal or inland gardens. Like all Westringia types it handles windy salt laden conditions. Its great for hot sunny positions or spots that get light shade. Blue Gem™ Westringia will flower profusely in spring and regularly at other times of the year.

You can keep it pruned like in the photo above, or prune it only very occasionally and let it grow quite large. As a beautiful flowering plant that’s low maintenance, Blue Gem™ Westringia is hard to beat.
