Native Australian plants

Contents

A developing list of possible native plants for a suburban garden in Wright, Australian Capital Territory, approximately 10 km WSW from Canberra city centre, near the base of Mount Stromlo, in the Molonglo Valley.

Currently the plant list is sorted by type. Most of the plants have been sourced as tube stock from the Australian Native Plant Society bi-annual sales at the Australian National Botanic Gardens, Canberra (2010-2012). Several unidentified species are not listed (e.g., bountiful local tea tree seedlings were dug up from a rural road verge after heavy rain).

Our vision is to develop a permaculture garden (N, E, S) blending into front native garden (W) which will include Australian native edibles.

Propagation

Grasses

"Most native grass species are best grown from fresh seed although some, such as the Speargrasses (Austrostipa spp.) have an after-ripening period during which germination rates are low, meaning seeds should be stored for at least a year before sowing."[1]
