Canna Pretoria is a stunner! Beautiful, lush variegated foliage with yellow and green stripes and stunning orange flowers. This is a Canna of medium height, up to around 1.5m tall. Canna plants are generally very easy to grow. They are best in a sunny to part shady position. Cannas need to be grown in a warm position. You can grow them in cooler climates, in spring, and dig them up before the cold weather starts. You can store the bulbs/rhizomes in a cool dry place and re-plant them in spring. Your Canna rhizomes may even over-winter okay in the ground, as long as the ground doesn't freeze, and will then re-shoot in spring when the weather warms up. Plants for sale: rhizome

The Australian Fan Palm is one of Australia's most beautiful native palms. It originates from the North Queensland Rainforests, from north of Townsville to Cape York. The Australian Fan Palm has very large round fan leaves and is best grown in a shady spot. Leaves will be greener in deeper shade but does need some light to grow. As the Aussie Fan Palm grows taller it will, in its natural habitat, receive more sun and will handle full sun when it outgrows the other trees.
