G’day everyone, I’ve been a bit preoccupied lately but thought I should give a bit of an update about my Thomases (that’s what I’ve named them).
For those who haven’t seen the other page, this species is from the Arthur River/Wagin/Woodanilling area. Although it hasn’t been formally identified yet, it’s been classified as ‘Priority 1′ plant (i.e. under immediate threat and is a candidate for declaration as rare flora) so a pretty good one to get into peoples’ gardens.
Much like me, they have a crinkled, hairy appearance and prefer a bit of shade on a hot day. Unlike me, they adorn themselves in pinky/mauve coloured flowers from September through to November.
In general, they have been doing well. One has been a bit parched (Thomas 12, I think), but nothing a bit of TLC won’t fix according to Sue & Graeme.
Looking forward to meeting the next batch soon. Keep up the good work folks.
Hello there Cameron, thanks for the update! Your Thomases (love it!!) sound like they’re going great guns, good for you! I’m dying to see what they’re looking like in a couple of weeks’ time! I’ve been in touch with Hazel about everyone’s plants & will post separately some feedback from her. Cheers 🙂
