Regions / Australia
Australian flora is incredibly rich and beautiful. It counts 24,000 species of native plants, many being very adaptable, easy to grow and withstanding the harsh Australian climate. Popular Australian native plants include climbers, shrubs, trees and drought-tolerant plants. Among them are the Banksia, Grevillea, Scaevola, Acacia, Eucalyptus but there are many more spectacular native plants.
Selecting plants suited to the Australian climate is a key step to success. Various initiatives have taken place to determine how well plants would withstand the cold winter temperatures (Plant Hardiness Zones) or when plants would start suffering from the heat (Plant Heat Zones).
Australia lies in Plant Hardiness Zones 7 through 12 and Heat Zones 2 through 14.
