What can we expect to see flowering in south east Queensland gardens in June? Goodness it really depends on what the weather has been doing doesn't it. As I write this, I have flowers on my Tabebuia rosea which really shouldn't be flowering until September and the China Flat peach tree is already setting tiny peaches. Nonetheless we can expect to see the spring bulbs sending up some strong foliage but shouldn't see any buds until we start to get into August. You might see some early flowers on jonquils, daffodils and freesias though, especially if they have been in the same place for a number of years. Some of the lowering plants you can expect to see flowering in Brisbane and surrounds at the moment are Ixora, Brunfelsia, Ruellia, Tree dahlias, Rondeletia leucophylla, Camellias both japonica and the later flowering sasanquas, and the wonderful winter flowering salvias such as S. wagneriana, madrensis, varieties of involucrata - 'Joan', 'Pink Icicles', 'Mulberry Jam' and 'Timboon'. Many of the microphylla/greggii hybrid salvias continue to flower during winter.
