Not yet greygardener. We thought we should wait until Spring to plant something. 

 

Do you know what this is? I saw it when walking the dog. It's relatively new but looks beautiful.

Red Robin is a tough  plant, I have seen a large hedge go under in a floods and at the same place out in a very hot sun as well as frost and - 4 degs maybe less as its close to a gully. Mine is the same out in the sun and never gets watered plus we had -3 deg this year and its out in flower now.

Don't  worry about the cold or frost they are tough, we went down to - 4 degs and been out in full sun and now they are in flower.

trayzee67,
Im really enjoying all the input everyone is giving each other , and its cetainly helping myself, I never realized how Difficult it is to select a "Hedge or Tree" Screen. espically when it is so dry here in Toowoomba/ it seems a contradiction as you see all the flowers etc out for "Carnival of Flowers ". A nursery today specializing in Australian natives" told me not to bother planting anything .. as its so dry and wait for rain.!!

You all have been so very helpful and i look forward to logging in more. Just a note I dont want to steal the gardening areas THUNDER as its AMAZING!! but on facebook a great place to go if you want a plant identifed is What Plant is That. just post a picture and in less than a day they seem to know. as they identified a red plant i posted on here, . But Im so glad i found this site.

Many thanks for the feedback @trayzee67, much appreciated.

 

Feel free to ask the Workshop community if you want any plants identified. This has been a popular thread - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Garden/Name-the-plant/m-p/2692

 

It might also be timely to create a discussion for how to deal with the very dry conditions we're experiencing in much of the country. It certainly seems like it's going to be a tough summer ahead.
