Ficinia nodosa or as previously known Isolepsis is one of my favourite grasses, it grows anywhere from sand dunes to swamps. It also has a habit of spreading whether out from the clump running a little or easily by seed, for me this is a good feature as you can use it for weed suppression and land rejuvenation. It looks green nd lush most of the year round and will often weep so much it lays along the ground. The decorative seed heads atop each stem make it a feature when planted amongst other grasses and it looks stunning mixed in with grey foliage grasses such as Poa ‘Eskdale’ or Lomandra ‘Seascape’.

Birdbaths designed for birds

Mallee Birdbaths are specifically designed to serve birds. The copper dishes are broad and shallow, allowing birds to land on the edge and walk into the water. The baths are modern, elegant and durable. They are locally made in the Illawarra (NSW, Australia) using materials that will weather well and last decades. For help on which dish to choose, go here.
