Native Bunch - Not Xmas Yet!
Our Bunches & Posies this week feature the beautiful Dorrigo Waratah. We are lucky to be able to use this flower in the cut flower industry as it is one of the many Australian and in particular NSW plant species that are listed as 'at risk' of extinction. Since European settlement, NSW has lost 30 plants to extinction, gone forever. The Northern Beaches are very lucky to just escape this statistic with the Seaforth Mintbush listed as critically endangered, but still here!
Thanks to the good work of the Australian Botanic Garden and their seed bank and the cultivators & growers we get to enjoy this wonderful flower. See how we used the dorrigo Waratah this week at www.nativebunch.com.au Below is a close up photo of our Posy.
We are Native Bunch!
