So you have just moved into your new home in Pallara, Its a new build and you have just finished decorating inside but now you want to tackle the garden. Where do you start?
It can be hard deciding what to plant and where so here are a few trees that I recommend for any new home build in Pallara.
5 suitable trees
Lagerstroemia or crape myrtle as they are more commonly known are hardy deciduous trees that have attractive bark, colourful autumn foliage and stunning summer flowers. Crape myrtles are available in many varieties including ones with striking burgundy foliage. Crape myrtles come in dwarf as well as larger varieties.
Ivory Curl Tree
Buckinghamia celsissima or Ivory curl trees make a fantastic tree for your front yard. In summer, ivory curl trees are covered in cream flowers that attract bees and nectar-feeding birds. This tree will reach around 8 meters tall and larger in warmer areas but can be pruned.
Callistemon or Bottle brush as commonly known are a fantastic native tree to grow for small backyard.
Compact evergreen Magnolias
Magnolia varieties such as ‘Little Gem’ and ‘Teddy Bear’ have glossy green leaves with a striking rusty colour underneath and white flowers in summer. These are great for providing a dense screen or grown as a feature tree.
Syzygium is a large group of Australian native plants more commonly known as Lilly pilly. Ranging from shrubs to trees, and boasting lush foliage that can help create a great screen or shade. Most have white bee attracting flowers in spring or summer followed by edible berries that are loved by native birds like parrots.
