The Plight of the Water Wise Plants – Part 2

Townsville is dry for a vast majority of the year, so it makes sense to invest in plants that not only can cope with the dry but also flourish.

Introducing “Cousin It” (Casuarina glauca):

Water Wise Palnts
An unusual ground cover that will be a talking point of every garden it resides in. With a height to 30cm length to 1.5m it is great for mass plantings, cascading over a retaining wall, general ground cover and perfect for weed suppression.
Another great feature of the ‘Cousin It’ is that it can tolerate a wide range of soil types – even tolerant of poorly drained soils.

Project Plants Loves the ‘Cousin It’ and gets them in all the time.  Check out if we have any at our Plant availabilty list.

Contact us for more details about any plants for your next project.

Stay tuned for more exciting news!

The Plight of the Water Wise Plants – Part 1

Townsville has been on the dry side lately and that leads us to think of what plants will be appropriate to cope in this situation. The importance of having a green space at home or at the office should not be underestimated. So are there plants that are suitable with level 3 water restrictions? The answer is ‘yes’.  Part 1 of The Plight of the Water Wise Plants begins below.

Introducing Zanzibar Gem, Zamioculcas zamiifolia. Striking green and glossy leaves, known to purify the air, doesn’t mind only getting watered once a week and doesn’t even care if its root bound in a pot – making this plant a winner in so many ways. So my only warning? Don’t over water this plant and keep it warm (which in North Queensland it’s not hard to do).

Although it might be a plant that is hard to kill and thrives on neglect, I still consider it a real collectors piece. The plant has a signature look that really adds value and appeal to help create or add to your green space – whether in decorative pots or fill planter boxes.

Water Wise Plants

Project Plants have Zanzibar Gems in 200mm pots for $18 each. The pots are full and the plants are large! Contact us for more details.

Stay tuned for Part 2.
