Ask RiotACT: Tough plants for Canberra conditions

By McZero - 14 June 2016 6

Ask RiotACT

Hi, I am not much of a gardener, so I need a bit of advice. I have a bit of a garden that faces east with a fence behind it that I need to plant out. I used to have a correa and a federation daisy in there but last winter seemed to kill them. It seems gardening in Canberra is pretty tough because of the clay soil, low rainfall and freezing winters. My wife asked for plants with lots of flowers. So, with this in mind:

1. Do people have any plants thriving in an east facing garden that have lots of flowers?

2. What are some tough plants with lots of flowers that thrive here in canberra? Bulletproof plants that thrive on neglect

Thank you.
