SPECIALISING IN THE INDIGENOUS FLORA OF THE ADELAIDE COAST, PLAINS & FOOTHILLS

The attached list shows our current species list of indigenous plants of the Adelaide coast, plains and foothills. We are continually adding new species, so please contact us if the species you want is not listed. We can assist with species selection for any given project or location.

We aim to have a year round stock of all species. All our plants are raised from seeds or cuttings collected locally on the Adelaide coast, plains and foothills, and so are perfectly adapted to the local climate and soils. Our plants are grown in full sun.
