This list is a work in progress. Over time, it will become a resource about garden plants suitable for Qld gardens (or potentially so), especially the subtropical and tropical climate zones. More...

Looking for a supplier? First, check the links below. There are specialist nurseries advertising on some of the dedicated pages. If you still can't find somewhere to buy the plant you're looking for, the editor is interested in hearing from you and might be able to help you personally. More information here: Looking for a Supplier?

Do you operate a nursery supplying the public in Qld? If you specialise in any of these plant groups, listing your business on relevant pages could help more customers find you. More about advertisting on this website here: Information for Advertisers.

More about this page

The intention here is to develop a resource about garden plants that grow in Qld gardens (or could potentially be grown), concentrating on tropical to subtropical climates. A few popular plants better suited to cooler and/or Mediterranean climates may be included because many people will be searching for advice on how to grow them in Qld and there may be some species or varieties which will perform here. Plants primarily for temperate/cool regions are extensively covered in other publications and won't be covered on this site.

Only the most commonly cultivated Australian native genera will be listed above. Native plant enthusiasts should visit the Australian Native Plant Pages for more on natives.

Note that some species within a listed genus may be unsuitable for cultivation in Qld, recognised weeds or even illegal to grow here. Be sure to check the suitability of any plant for a given location before planting. For the sake of legibility on screen, botanical names in the list have not been italicised.
