I’ve mentioned this week that my zone 1 garden, the native garden, is designed to show strong colours and colour contrasts and that the feature beds are riffs on red and silver. This granite kunzea was one of the few remaining plants in the garden when we arrived, and I didn’t know what it was. I’d guessed it was the silver-and-burgundy waxflower but didn’t know. I was delighted when late spring came and it turned out to look like this, and more delighted to find it was a plant still on sale at native nurseries. I have planted another on the opposite side of the garden so that they can reflect and balance each other.
