Home Living : November 10th 2009
2 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, November 10, 2009 Flowering trees HOMELIVING In the garden Judy Horton is an adviser for Yates As the weather warms up, many different flowering trees are showing themselves off in gardens. Jacarandas, for example, create a sea of blue that hovers in the warm air. They are often seen at their best from a plane, with the sapphire-coloured puffs contrasting against the red-tiled roofs. The native frangipani does well in suburbanbackyards. Fenceline planting suits its upright growth habit. The Illawarra flame tree (pictured) makes a stunning displayinlate spring and early summer, and looks at its best if it loses all (or most) of its leaves beforehand, allowing the red flowers to stand out against dark, bare limbs. Buy a grafted flame tree if you can. It will still take some time to begin flowering, but the display will be more reliable. Asmaller native tree is the pretty blueberry ash. The dainty, fringed, hoop- petticoat blooms thatdangle from the branches are followed by deep blue berries. Orchid (or bauhinia) trees were once thought of as being strictly for the tropics, but some species grow quite well in frost- free or light-frost gardens. Good winter- spring rains help set them up for a massed show of orchid-like blooms.
