Autumn Plants We're Loving

06 Apr, 2023

Autumn is a season known for colourful foliage and stunning flowers. As the weather begins to cool down, a huge variety of eye-catching plants arrive into our stores, providing plenty of options to decorate your garden and home. Here are some of our favourites this season.


Chrysanthemums are the ultimate showstoppers in the garden! With their bright colours and easy care nature, they bring joy and beauty to outdoor spaces. Plus, they bloom late into autumn, providing a much-needed burst of life to our gardens during a season when everything else is winding down.


With their cute, heart-shaped leaves and little flowers, cyclamen have a special place in our hearts. Their stunning flowers in vibrant shades of pink, red, and white are a must-have for any garden in the cooler months. Cyclamen are also incredibly low maintenance and grow well in the shade.


These versatile natives bring a fresh, stylish vibe to any garden with their lush foliage in green, grey, and purple and their pretty blooms in pinks, purples, and whites. We love how low maintenance they are, which makes them perfect for both seasoned and beginner gardeners alike.


You had us at guacamole! These amazing trees not only provide us with delicious, creamy avocados, but they also bring a tropical vibe to the garden. With their lush, green foliage and all year round fruiting (once fully established), what's not to love? Plus, they're surprisingly easy to care for and can be grown in a range of climates.


The sweet scent of gardenia flowers is sure to turn heads, and the blooms themselves are absolutely stunning. Whether you plant them in pots or beds, gardenia add a touch of sophistication to your outdoor space. These plants can keep blooming for months on end, giving you an endless supply of gorgeous flowers and divine scent.


Prized for their lush glossy evergreen foliage and long-lasting blooms from autumn, camellias are perfect as a feature plant, or as a thick hedge all year round. There are two main species of camellia grown in New Zealand. Japonica have larger flowers, and are best in shade, whereas sasanqua are best in full sun to part shade.
