Plant of the Moment

Golden Shasta Daisy - 'Banana Cream'

An amazing "showy" herbaceous perennial.  Gorgeous lemon yellow petals which fade out to a banana cream colour.  Has a golden orange centre.  Blooms from early summer.

Has a height of 30 - 45cm ..... and requires no staking!  Forms a nice mound of 45 - 60cm

A low maintenance plant that loves the full sun and tolerates quite dry spots.  Very hardy and easy to grow.  Extremely frost tolerant.

Great cut flower and attracts the bees.

I can't get enough of this one.

Ashton Glen Nursery is an Online Nursery located in Otago specializing in hardy alpines and perennials.

We are here to help you enjoy your patch of paradise!

All plants are grown outdoors in Otago, in the southern belt of New Zealand. So they are inflicted with irregular weather, snow, severe frosts, far too many polar blasts and periods of hot dry weather. In other words - if they do not survive for me in my nursery then I am not interested in growing and fussing with them. If they are not attractive then they also end up in the compost bin too.
Should you have trouble finding anything specific you can either use the Search Engine on this site or contact me.  I will be more than happy to help.
Shipping and processing charges are shown on the Shipping link to your left and under the Info tab. No plant orders are sent out of New Zealand because of international bio-security laws. Niwashi Garden Tools however can be exported.

Please note too that the nursery is not open to the public.  Other life commitments (farm & family) mean that a "shop" arrangement is not possible as I am often somewhere else wearing one of my other hats.  The nursery is a production nursery.
