The Correas are budding, the Banksias are producing those perfectly symetrical buds and flowers like Hakea 'Stockdale Sensation' are indeed sensational.
Hakea clavata is covered in pink scented flowers and the Wattles are flowering too and most of them are also scented.
So many of the Grevilleas are coming into flower that the Honey Eaters are having a hard time choosing which to visit first.
The Friends of Nangawooka, in conjunction with the Australian Plant Society, are holding an Autumn Open Day to showcase all these wonderful plants on Sunday, April 15, from 11am to 4pm. There will be an all day BBQ and coffee, tea and cake available.
Specialist Australian Native plant growers will be selling their stock and will be happy to help with advice on what to plant in local gardens.
There will be free soil testing – just bring a small amount of your soil – and garden tours. The APS group is also selling a wide variety of second-hand plant books at a good price.
Entry is free, but a gold coin donation would be appreciated. All money raised goes towards the upkeep of the Reserve and the purchase of plants and labels.
The Reserve is situated at the corner of Waterport Rd and the Victor Harbor Road on Nangawooka Lane.
There is ample parking at both gates. Most of the paths are wheelchair friendly. Any queries contact Helen on 0419 827 166
