Australian Native Plants provides a comprehensive guide to the horticulture of our native plants. Based on nearly 50 years of experience at Kings Park and Botanic Garden in Perth, the book describes the necessary growing conditions for mainly Western Australian native plants and covers some of the more technical aspects such as plant propagation and grafting, the use and benefits of tissue culture, methods of seed collection and storage, and the role of smoke in improving germination. Western Australia is home to about five per cent of the world’s vascular plants and contains Australia’s only terrestrial ‘biodiversity hotspot’. Written by experts with an in-depth knowledge of how to grow these plants outside their natural habitat, Australian Native Plants provides the more technically minded professional or enthusiast with information based on decades of research, experimentation and application. It aims to encourage the growing of Australian plants so that they can be used more widely and contribute to interesting, attractive and diverse private gardens and public landscapes in a changing environment.

"Native offers planting palettes and design themes, gardening techniques and inspiration for an original and exciting perspective on the very best of Australian local flora. When Kate Herd started experimenting with how she pruned and trained the native plants in her riverside garden in Melbourne, she made some amazing discoveries. A eucalyptus shrub she had cut right back to the ground reappeared as the most beautiful sprawling ground cover. Westringia was shaped to impersonate perfect English Box balls. And she found that Tasmanian beech trees could grow as a copse in small city courtyards. Jela had similar experiences in her own garden design practice and together Kate and Jela have explored the unique beauty and resilience of Australia's native plants. Known for their absolute versatility and hardiness in the garden, native plants also offer up original forms for cut flowers and sculpture. Garden designers Fiona Brockhoff and Sue Barnsley, Sculptor Tracey Deep and Artist Janet Lawrence all share their own love of Australian plants and how they incorporate them into their work. Chapters cover topics such as: Feature Foliage, Sculptural Forms, Pliability, Shady Spaces and Flowering Meadows."--

Interest in growing native plants has burgeoned in recent years, especially with many more varieties of native plants being available in specialist and general nurseries. Gardeners are not only drawn to native plants for their beauty, but also because they attract birds and butterflies to their gardens and are the ideal plants for our warmer summers and drier conditions. The variety of Australian native plants is enormous, some 20,000 species. They are found in just about any situation, from deserts to rainforests to alpine regions. Many are tolerant of saline conditions, some of arid conditions, some make excellent windbreaks, some withstand pollution, others tolerate flooding and more. So it doesn't matter where you live, there is a wide selection to suit your conditions. You don't even need a garden, they can be successfully grown in pots on a balcony or patio. If you are thinking about starting a native garden, or perhaps you want to improve and change what you already have, then this book will help you to make the right choices. Part 1 gives you all the basic information, including choosing the correct plants, landscaping with natives, caring for them, taking cuttings, tackling problems, and much more. Part 2 is an extensive plant encyclopaedia that covers all the main genera of Australian plants, their habits and cultivation requirements. The authors, John Mason and his colleagues at the Australian Horticultural Correspondence School, have written this book based on their wealth of knowledge and their years of experience in growing Australian native plants.

Australia's unique native flora includes numerous outstanding garden plants - from specimen trees to groundcovers and annuals. THE ILLUSTRATED ENCYCLOPEDIA OF AUSTRALIAN NATIVE PLANTS brings together more than 1600 species, hybrids and cultivars in a highly illustrated, user-friendly volume. Over 600 colour photographs combine with detailed descriptions, cultivation notes and other information to make a comprehensive reference that will be welcomed by gardeners. The selection of more than 1600 plants from the readily available to the rare, including many hardy, versatile and attractive trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants, ferns, vines and groundcovers. Selection has been made on the basis of the species and/or its cultivars and hybrids being widely cultivated or very well known, with the addition of some varieties that have a point of novelty or that are popular with native plant enthusiasts. A climatic zone map helps gardeners to develop an understanding of where their gardens fit in the widely varying Australian climatic zones and which plants are likely to grow best for them. In addition to a short general introduction, the book includes a number of essays that offer information and ideas on topics of particular interest. These include: * Planting to encourage and/or preserve native wildlife: How to manage a native plant garden so that it best fits the needs of the human inhabitants and the wildlife. * Coping with eucalypts: Although they are such a distinctive feature of the Australian flora, gums are not always the easiest plants to have in gardens. This essay looks at coping with their litter, ground-robbing tendencies and the possibility of soil salinity. * Gardening with drought: Planting to minimise water use and strategies to help your garden survive long dry periods. * Propagating native plants: The basic propagation techniques and also the special methods that apply to Australian bushland plants. * Natives for shade: While gardening in Australia often seems to be mainly about coping with heat, sun and drought, the native flora also includes plenty of ferns, cycads and lush foliage plants for shady areas.
