The Colours of Tamborine Mountain

Colours of Tamborine Mountain

The combination of native and introduced species can produce some beautiful palettes of colour. Here we have jacaranda trees in flower, the fresh red shoots of the Fetinia shrub, and a Bouginvillea.

Tamborine Mountain has a flourishing garden club that can advise you on what species are suited to the plateau's unique climate. Generally speaking, provided the plant is not averse to the dry winter with a very occasional frost, and does not mind getting its feet wet in the summer, it will thrive in the fertile soil - the weeds certainly do!
