The leaves of the first plant look as if they were from a Iridacea (like gladioli...).

The second flower is Scaevola aemula, the shrub looks like Grevillea lanígera...

Wonderful garden, Logan, special praise for the aster and anemone!

There are many "Brazils", Posy. Where I live is subtropical (cool

dry winters, nice spring and autumn), but the microclimate of my

back garden is almost temperate (because it is South faced). My

delphiniums,for example, seem to be growing nice this year...

Verdun, thank you for the (optimistic) advice. My garden is a bit

too dark for lupins, I guess (even sweet peas only seem to flower

in the front garden). Where I live (Brazil), lupins are not usually

available as plugs, only as seed. It seems that I have better luck

with plants that flower more quickly (like phlox, aster,

pelargoniums, larkspur) than with perennials that take 

a lot of time to mature; that's why I thought of the dwarf lupins.

Hi, all. For many years I have  tried to grow lupins (the

common  Russell ones), and they just take centuries to grow

and ... nothing, they never flower. There´s this new dwarf

lupin called "Avalune" which promises to grow in 4 weeks,

has anyone tried them, and do they really do it ?

Looks like a kind of plumbago (P.auriculata or P.capensis), they're very popular where I live too.
