Native Annuals and Perennials. Australian annual and perennial plants can be used to create excitement in your garden as they are quick growing, usually very floriferous and because they are relatively temporary they can be replaced on a regular basis to add something new each year.
Australian Native Orchids. Native orchids range from the spectacular epiphytic (growing on trees) and lithophytic (growing on rocks) species of the tropical jungles and warmer areas of Australia, to the intricately subtle terrestrial (growing in the ground) species found throughout the dry eucalypts forests throughout the continent.

Native grasses and friends. An exciting thing is happening in the world of Australian plants. Wild species that have tantalised gardeners in the past are now being improved to create a diverse palette of new varieties that offer all kinds of advantages. In particular, the necessity for water-wise, low maintenance gardens has inspired interest in plants that can be used as ground covers that will not only suppress weeds and erosion but also look fantastic.
Crowea 'Green Cape' is a compact, prostrate dwarf shrub with short thick aromatic foliage and masses of multi-hued pink waxy star flowers. Butterflies, moths and dainty harmless native bees love the flowers. Use as a mounding groundcover in beds, cascading over banks or walls, or as a pot plant for balconies, courtyards and patios. Great for coastal gardens. Will cope with dry spells. Good for cool temperate to sub tropical areas. Feed with a good low phosphorus native fertiliser. The flowers are great for cutting for vases.
