Common Heath – Epacris impressa

Common Heath is flowering – (Epacris impressa)

The Victorian floral emblem, the Common Heath grows in heathland, shrubland or open forest as well as being a great plant for a garden. It is generally a small shrub around half to one metre tall, with small stiff leaves. At Candlebark we have both pink and white flowering forms that flower from late autumn to early spring. It is bird attacking and honeyeaters, particularly the eastern spinebill, feed upon the nectar of the flowers.

Our beautiful pots of Common Heath (Epacris impressa) are in full flower.

“Jararium” – a new idea for indoor plants

“Jararium” – a new idea for indoor plants

Following the segment on Gardening Australia in March (see our Facebook post) about creating “jarariums”, one of our wonderful volunteers has created one using Running Marsh Flower and Milfoil – and it looks great. Of course, we have these and a number of other wetland plants that would be perfect for creating your own ‘jararium’ at home.
