Wynn's Cassia UT
Cassia rotundifolia syn. Chamaecrista rotundifolia
Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA
Cover crops such as Wynn's Cassia provide a living carpet of perennial plants for orchards.

Wynn's Cassia is a spring and summer vigorous, perennial legume to 40 cm high, it dies back in winter but self-sows prolifically. It is only suitable for subtropical and tropical areas, as it requires a summer rainfall to do well. It will recover from a light frost. Wynn's cassia is not eaten by horses and is only moderately palatable to cattle.
Provided in mini pots.

Yarrow - Red UT
Achillea millefolium rubra
Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA
Syn. gordaldo, sanguinary, milfoil, plumajillo.
Yarrow is a hardy, medicinal, perennial herb used since ancient times. Yarrow leaves combined with peppermint and elderflower is a traditional tea used for colds and flu. The fern-like leaves are arranged in a rosette with ornamental pinkish-red flowers appearing in early summer. The flowers can be used in dried flower arrangements. Handfuls of yarrow are believed to speed up the decomposition of the compost heap and to add soil nutrients such as copper, nitrates, phosphates and potash to the compost. It can be used as a feed for livestock. Grow it in full sun and dead-head regularly. The flowers are attractive to bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects. Red Yarrow is less vigorous than White Yarrow so it is easier to control.
