Scotch Moss

Scotch Moss (Sagina subulata ‘Aurea’)

  Scotch Moss is an evergreen perennial groundcover that forms a very low moss-like carpet of bright neon-yellow foliage. It grows 1-2cm high and spreads 15-30cm.

Gleeful Gazania

Gazanias are little rays of sunshine with their vivid yellow and orange faces. Stalwarts in any African summer garden, they are the plant that just keeps on giving without much in return.

Portulaca – A Timely Treasure

Companies the world over can only dream of having staff arrive at work as punctually as a portulaca blooms in the morning time.

Burst into spring with vygies

Vygies are a family of jewel-like plants that are in full flower during September. Vygies – or mesembryanthemums – are truly South Africa’s most colourful plant group.

Portulaca – Time Flower

The low, spreading growth habit of these fleshy-leafed, low maintenance plants makes them ideal as a groundcover for sunny banks, rockery pockets and between paving, where they will quickly spread a carpet of brightly coloured, single or double rose-like flowers.
