New plants arriving this week at Peacock Horticultural Nursery

New plants arriving Friday at Peacock Horticultural Nursery:

Begonia acetosa

  • Begonia acetosa – Ruby Begonia (one gallon pots) – A rhizomatous begonia with round foliage that is olive green on top and velvety red underneath.  Plant is less than 1′ tall.  Great hanging plant, houseplant in bright light.  Let dry between waterings.  Plants will appreciate a little extra humidity.  Not hardy and needs protection in winter.
  • Begonia ‘Angel Glow’ (2 gallon pots) – A rhizomatous begonia with foliage that is coppery red, ruffled and spiraled.  Let dry between waterings.  Hardiness unknown, but I would assume it would need protection from cold and wet in winter.

  • Begonia gehrtii ‘Comet’ (5 gallon pots) A rhizomatous begonia with large leaves that have an crazy texture.  Amazing!  Needs bright light and regular water. Needs protection from winter cold and wet.

Begonia gehrtii ‘Comet’

  • Dymondia margaretae – Silver Carpet (4″ pots) Slowly spreading, low groundcover 1 – 2″ only with gray-green and white leaves and little yellow flowers. Plant in full sun in well draining soil.  May need protection from gophers.  Hardy to 25 – 30 F.  Low water needs once established.
  • Grevillea ‘Austraflora Fanfare’  (5 gallon pots) A low growing goundcover shrub to about 1′ tall and up to 15′ wide with red brush-like flowers from winter to fall.  Plant in full sun in well draining soil.  Needs little water once established.  Resistant to deer, rabbits and gophers, but loved by hummingbirds.  Hardy to about 25 F.

Grevillea ‘Austraflora Fanfare’

  • Grevillea ‘Spirit of Anzac’ (one gallon pots) – One of the newer Grevilleas forming large shrubs to 10′ tall and 8′ wide with bright red flowers nearly year-round.  Can be pruned in late spring to keep more compact and hopefully increase flower production.
