September has continued to give us poppies, sweet pea, freesias, hyacinth, tulips and iris. The range of earlicheer, jonquils and daffodils is diminished and so now by the end of the month there is only a limited range.
Ranunculus have continued to be beautiful and anenomes and pieris have started. Lily of the valley hasn't started yet.
Lavender continues, and daisies have started to appear at the markets. Hydrangea hasn't started yet.
The colour range in locally grown roses has been lovely, with numbers starting to increase with the warmer weather.
Blue butterfly delphinium has been the only delphinium available, in both darker blue and lighter blue. Snap dragons and stock have also been beautiful.
Local arums (white, marshmallow and green godess) have started, but only a few imported callas have been available.
Orchids, oriental lilies, asiatic lilies, longiflorum lilies, carnations, alstromeria, chrysanthemum and gladioli have been available. Local cymbidium orchids have been fantastic, in a lovely colour range.
Gymea lilies and proteas have been available this month. Sea holly, blushing bride, banksias (coccinea, hookerania and menziesii), beautiful red and green leacadendron, and gumnuts have been available. Red wax bud and wax flower have both been available. Flowering gum hasn't started yet.
Hypericum has been a little hard to get but some imports are available. Pink and white blossom branches are still available.
Managed to get a few imported lisianthus but no local available. The imports are not nearly as nice as the locally grown lisianthus.
