Beautiful - such a variety. I tried growing Kangeroo Paws - did really well for two years but snuffed it this winter.

Even in these gardens Wagger, they are regarded as short-lived plants. Apparently their performance declines after about 3 or 5 years - they do divide the clumps to try to extend their life a bit.

Hi Bernieh, Once again I am bowled over by the colour and variety of the plants at Roma Street Parkland it looks an amazing place I have a long lost friend who lived close to that area every time I see the pictures I think of her and wonder how she is.

Thansk Sueb - I was surprised myself at the colour and variety after all the very strict water restrictions they've had for so long. Hopefully your friend is doing very well and perhaps visits the parklands often - it's always a shame when we lose contact with our friends.
