Green Haven is aptly named. This is a collector’s garden not to be missed, opening to raise funds for the WA Cancer Council.
The expansive verge garden gives a teaser as to the treasures within, with its eclectic blend of natives and exotics.
A true gardeners’ garden with a vast array of unusual plants creatively arranged to make the most of all available space. No boring narrow side passages here! Shade has been created to enable rare species of bromeliads, begonias, ferns and other shade plants to flourish. Passion for the rare and quirky is evident here and wherever you look, there is something to catch your eye.
Relax with a cuppa and feast your eyes on the clever shade plant combinations or meander along winding paths and discover treasures in every nook and cranny. Frog and fishponds decorate the narrow spaces and barbed wire ball sculptures, made by a friend, of which some are bird feeders.
Orchids play a major role in this well-loved and tended garden, the owners being experienced growers and members of the Orchid Society. What a rare treat this garden is for it contains many unusual and interesting species with a focus on shade plants not found in your typical Perth garden. Succulents are also strewn throughout this relaxing garden to give colour and texture thoughtfully arranged to provide maximum contrast.
