Native bluebell (Wahlenbergia stricta) ‘Blue Mist’


Spring sees the stunning blues of our native bluebell appearing in the bush and in gardens. The blue becomes electric when it’s teemed with an acacia ‘Limelight’ in a rockery or garden bed. Bring the vibrant blue blooms to eye level in a hanging basket, or make them a moveable feast, in pots. Be sure to use a native potting mix, and feed annually with a slow release fertiliser for natives. Wahlenbergia stricta ‘Blue Mist’ is available from Sydney Wildflower Nursery in Heathcote, (02) 9548-2818.
