“The natives are restless!” – quite the opposite is true – the natives are actually very restful with soothing shades of green, grey, red, yellow, and everything in between. The old concept of natives being a mass of green is behind the times, and by planting contrasting colours and using the wide range of foliage types you’ll create an interesting background or screen. Lots of the natives have been hybridised to give us improved forms and better performers – “Go native!”
