Do you want a hint of purple in your flower arrangement? Mediterranean in origin and well-known for its beautiful aroma, lavender has been a hit with Wyong locals among winter time for many years. If you want them as a focal point in your house, their delightful fragrance will be sure to help you relax after a hard day’s work.

Daphne (Daphne odora)

Hiding away waiting to blossom all autumn, the daphne really comes into its own during winter. Originating from China, Japan and Korea, the daphne flower would make a perfect addition to any floral arrangement. Their pale-pink, tubular flowers will brighten up any passageway or balcony areas.

Winter rose (Helleborus)

With a common name like winter rose, there’s no surprise that this species of plant is best suited to the colder Wyong climate. Ironically, the winter rose is technically not a rose at all, but this doesn’t take away from its beauty. They have a luscious texture and they’re pretty durable if you were thinking of adding them to a vase. Their green nodding blooms and spotted markings really make them quite unique.

Snowdrops (Galanthus)

If a plant is known to flower in the meadows of England, then it’s not going to have any trouble dealing with a Wyong winter. While these are not exploding with colour, they’re quite cute and are a welcome inclusion into any floral arrangement. Also, not to be confused with the snowflake (leucojum), which features a much taller bulb, however is just as suitable for winter.
