Home Living : September 29th 2009
2 HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, September 29, 2009 Best on show HOMELIVING In the garden Judy Horton is an adviser for Yates Spring is the season for new plants and a recent trade display by the NSW nursery industry brought out the best of this year's introductions. Judges' gold awards went to a world- first, yellow-flowered pelargonium from Geranium Cottage in Middle Dural(have you ever seen a pelargonium with a yellow flower?) and Princettia, a frilly- bloomed pot poinsettia from Oasis. While the yellow geranium is sure to be worth waiting for, Geranium Cottage is still building up plant numbers and is unlikely to have the yellow variety available until the new year at the earliest. Princettia poinsettias are already on sale and are bound to be widely used as living decorations this Christmas. Silver award winner, Jesters Joy (pictured), is a new indoor plant with upright tubular blooms that will flower for months in a well-lit position. The clever name gives a good indication of the cheery mix of flower colours -- just think of the multi-tones in a jester's costume. The other silver award winner, Vintage Red, is a new, red-leafed form of the native sugar gum. This medium-to-large eucalypt will need a bit of space in the garden but, with the stunning colour contrast provided by unique, maroon- coloured leaves, established specimens are bound to be attention-grabbers. As well as its silver award, Vintage Red was voted as the People's Choice at the show.
