HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT

INDIGENOUS PLANT

Keep track, we continue to add plants and categories each week.

Depending on your garden style, knowledge, and experience, these categories allow you to find a range of plants suitable for your specific needs. A gardener whose garden is designed mainly around wildlife interaction may require companion plants, a grassland corner, forest -edge, or wildlife pond. Those looking to create a sustainable, low-maintenance garden may begin with their rainfall region.

 

Each category page gives you an overview of the plants that fall within it, ordered by subcategories - trees, shrubs, etc, and in some cases, sun and shade within the subcategories. Click on a plant for further info; to move to the next plant inside the subcategory, use the NEXT and PREVIOUS buttons in the top right of the plant description page. 

Plants are limited to those listed in our database. We're currently adding more species so keep popping back.
