State Flora

State Flora is South Australia’s leading Australian native plant nursery. In operation since 1886, we stock over 1800 species of native plants for sale to the public at our Belair and Murray Bridge nurseries.

We specialise in South Australian species and stock a wide range of plants suitable for South Australia’s unique climate and soil conditions in both urban and rural areas. We stock trees, small and large shrubs, groundcovers, climbers, rushes, sedges, grasses and many uncommon and difficult to source plants.

Our plants are very competitively priced and grown to strict quality standards. We grow all our stock ourselves, so you're buying straight from the source and our Customer Rewards program makes buying your plants from State Flora even more worthwhile. All the money you spend at State Flora goes back into the nurseries to continue growing and promoting native plants.

Our friendly staff are passionate flora experts who can provide you with professional advice on planting and maintaining native species.

State Flora Nurseries are Nursery Industry accredited and Sustainable Gardening Australia accredited. We promote recycling, efficient water use, low environmental impact chemicals and fertilisers and innovative planting techniques. State Flora mixes all its own potting mixes on site and tests them regularly to conform to Australian potting mix standards.

Many of our trees use the 'Rocket Pot', which helps to develop a fresh, fibrous root system and eliminate root spiralling. The layered design and the open-ended cusps of the 'Rocket Pot' expose new root tips to the air, which helps the tree to establish itself quickly when planted in the ground. To reduce waste, trees are decanted on sale, the pots sterilised and then reused within the nursery.
