The Flinders in Kadina

Several of us visited Jan and her garden in April.  We planned to help her set up a couple of new beds, but spent most of our time just admiring her garden which was full of plants from the Flinders where she grew up.

This Ptilotis exultatus looked exultant.  And the ruby saltbush was also thriving.

Check out the varied colours of Senna artemisioides ssp sturtii.  And the purple of this brachyscome.
Several species of Goodenia grow in the Flinders. Not sure about this one. Jan’s using it as a ground cover under a large gum keeping company with an Ajuga australis.

So many Flinders plants thrive in our Yorke Peninsula and it was a real treat to see Jan’s favourites.
Do you have any Flinders species in your garden?
I’m keen to include a Spyridium parvifolium, but so far with no success. Any suggestions?
