The best Native Plants for your garden
Australian native plants are not just trendy, they are great for any style of garden. They also exemplify the natural beauty of our country. These plants are beautiful, tolerant to the harsh Australian climate, and look amazing with every kind of plant. For gorgeous flower beds and edges, choose River Daisies or Kangaroo Paws. Or for hedges, we recommend Lilly Pilly, Grevilles, Banksia, and Grass Trees.
No matter the size, style or scope of your garden design, there is the perfect, dazzling native plant for you! Our Australian soils are ancient and generally low in fertile and organic matter. As a result, native plant life grows much better in these climates than in others.
