Kennidia Exima 'Fine Red Creeper' - 20x Seeds

Kennedia Eximia 'Fine Red Creeper' is a prostrate trailing vine originating from Western Australia. In recent times has become an increasingly popular garden choice across Australia, where it is often grown as an informal ground cover, particularly in native gardens to attract birds. 

Kennedia Eximia is a fast growing evergreen climber with dense dark green foliage and beautifully large pea like scarlet flowers that first emerge with the onset of the warmer weather, and cover much of the plant over the warmer months, through to early Autumn.

A perfect plant to cover a trellis or fence but can also be used as a ground cover. 

A very strong garden performer which is both drought and frost tolerant once established.

 

Seed Starting Method

Due to the hard coating of Kennidia Exima seeds it is recomended to soak them using the below method.

Place the seed in a container and cover with boiled water and allow to soak overnight.

The swollen seed can then be sown, re-treat seeds that have not swollen yet until you're satisfied that the pre-treatment has worked.

Although most Australian Native  seed can be sown throughout the seasons across Australia it is advisable to sow in Spring or Summer in colder regions. The optimum temperate to ensure the best possible germination rate for sowing many tree species is around 18-22°C.

Growing tips

Soak your seeds in water overnight.

Sow seed on the surface and cover lightly to the depth of your seed. Do not bury deeply.

Water with fine mist spray to avoid disturbance of the seed.

Ensure the mix is moist but not water logged.

 

Germination generally occurs in 14-28 days when moved to warmer temperatures after the period of cold treatment.

Do not be too hasty to discard seeds that have not yet germinated, seeds will often lay dormant (in hibernation almost) until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination and sprouting to occur. Containers placed to one side & forgotten about will often surprise long after they were discarded.
