Information about plants & gardens for Brisbane & Qld


Plants with special names

to commemorate special occasions or special people

The New List

Starting in 2023, a new list of plants with meaningful names will be started to better reflect what's readily available in the Australian marketplace. Stay tuned...

The Old List

The following list was put together years ago. With the closure of so many specialist nurseries, it may be difficult if not impossible to obtain most of these varieties, but its being kept here for the time being as there may be some possibilities still and it demonstrates the general idea.

While there's a bias towards plants suitable for warmer climates, the plants above have been included primarily on the basis on their names. You'll still need to check that the plant is suitable for the climate and position for which it is intended. A plant which performs poorly, or on the other hand has to be removed because it grows too big, will be a particular dissapointment when it has been planted to commemorate a special occasion.

Thinking of giving a plant as a gift? Remember that prohibitions or restrictions may apply to movement of certain plants, plant material, seeds or soil, even locally. Please check with appropriate authorities if necessary. There are plenty of other ideas for gardening-related gifts on this page: Garden Gift Ideas.
