This is a wonderful tribute rose to an Australian icon. This rose is adored by all who love country music and the legend himself, Slim Dusty. The Slim Dusty rose is a coppery orange reminescent of the colours of the outback that Slim loved so much. This rose has a sweet tearose fragrance and would make a lovely gift for a country music fan.
I would describe this rose as pure and elegant. This luminous white rose grows in the Vatican's private garden and is a stunning tribute to one of the world's most beloved leaders. This elegant rose has won trophies and medals all around the world for fragrance,

An eclectic Visual merchandising display with new home ware finds.
Two of my favourite finds on our buying trip were the teak timber deer wall hangings and cow hide stools. I had purchased them for my own home, but I was so excited to show them off I displayed them in our lifestyle pavilion today. The teak carved bench was also an overseas find.
My husband Tim and I had an amazing time in Indonesia this year buying garden art and furniture for the garden centre. Things have got a little crazy at Serenity Nursery today as our 40 foot container finally arrived from overseas. Now we know we are getting known as being more zoo-like than garden centre, with our life size elephants, hippos and horse sculptures. Well, we have more quirky animals to add to the collection, a life sized giraffe sculpture was the first piece to make it in store today. Despite the pouring rain today Tim, Dad and the team worked hard to unpack the container and for us girls in the garden centre it was like Christmas unwrapping all of our unique finds. Stay tuned as I post photos of our new things on here, facebook and our website.
I am always on the look out for plants with interesting foliage and I think this new release plant will be a hit this year.

Raspberry coloured tasseled flowers will appear in Spring and Autumn. It is an easy to grow plant and will take full sun or part shade. It will grow to a height of 1m by 2m spread. Perfect for pots or retainer wall planting. In the nursery now.
