Petunias like it best in a sunny position, planted in a well drained soil or potting mix. They make a lovely border plant or you can put them in a pot or hanging basket. They will give you heaps of joy all year round.
Geraniums are a very hardy plant and "Pinktastic" is the plant of the month for Pohlmans. With its deep green leaves and a neat semi double flower, it is a great choice for those who want something hardy and will flower for most of the year.
Callistemon Pink Champagne is a bottle brush that flowers most of the year. It can make a very attractive hedge or specimen plant and the native birds love them.
Grevillea Pink Pixie is a hardy bush has a low spreading habit that grows to about 1 metre high. It flowers through winter and spring, it loves the sun and will tolerate a drier position in your garden. As with all natives fertilize them with a native fertilizer.
