Let's take a look at a few amazing flowers native to Australia that Bush offers in the right season.
Australia is home to many wonderful native flowers, Banksia is a popular choice among many. These flowers come in shades of yellow, orange, red and even pink! Banksia is truly an unforgettable gift! It comes in a variety of colours and some are even more special than others.
Whether you're searching for a unique and meaningful gift or simply want to make someone feel extra special, these long-lasting flowers are a perfect choice! Not only do they remain fresh longer than other blooms, but their vibrant colours also dry beautifully. It's no wonder why they've become one of our most beloved products.
Waratahs are stunning and highly sought-after flowers known for their brilliance of hues. During the short season when these beauties become available, they fly off the shelves due to their limited availability! While most people associate Waratahs with red petals, we offer unique varieties such as pink or white which makes them even more special. With its splendid colours combined with a fleeting shelf life; it's not hard to see why Waratah is an absolute favourite among flower enthusiasts.
Bottlebrushes are much more versatile than one might think - they come in an incredible spectrum of colours and sizes! From large blossoms to smaller petals, these beauties can add a rich texture and vibrant colour that will truly transform any outdoor space. And don't forget about the delightful range of shades available – from bright pinks to deep reds. Bottlebrushes have it all!
Our beautiful, delicate flowering gum is one of our most sought-after flowers. Although not always available year-round, we do have several varieties that vary depending on the season. At this time specifically, you can find lovely reds and pinks; while other times of the year will bring out soft whites, yellows and oranges! Adding a unique texture to any arrangement they accentuate in magnificence - truly a sight to behold!
Wattle, similar to the flowering gum, is a beautiful native flower that blooms in cycles. Generally found as yellow petals radiating from fluffy foliage, wattle also comes in other vibrant colours such as red with a sweet and subtle fragrance. Not only does this bright addition bring extra colour and texture to your bouquets; its unique scent will add an extra layer of beauty too!
Flannel is a stunningly soft flower native to Australia - usually white or cream-coloured with a yellow centre. Its cuddly texture inspired its name, and it's an incredibly popular bloom due to its captivating appeal. Although they are only in season for about two months of the year (normally towards September), people purchase them in abundance when available!
All throughout the year, we have access to wax flower in a variety of special varieties such as pink, purple and white. However, accessing it isn't always easy so we are only able to obtain certain types occasionally.
Banksias are undoubtedly our most popular flowers. With a wide assortment of species, you'll be sure to find one that speaks to your heart! Although many customers request waratahs as well, we unfortunately can't always have those on hand due to their shorter seasonal availability.
Next, the most popular blooms of Australia would be its beloved flowering gum and wattle. The Boronia flower is a beautiful addition to any garden as it has a delightful perfume scent that not everyone can smell - only around 75% can detect its delicate fragrance! If you have been lucky enough to experience it, then you know how gorgeous this special bloom truly is.
