Nurseries

At the nurseries the plants are grouped in the following categories:

  • climbers
  • ground cover
  • small shrubs
  • large shrubs
  • trees
  • monocots (sedges, grasses, rushes and other strappy leaved plants).

Within each group plants are listed alphabetically by their botanical name.

You can use the State Flora Nursery Catalogue as a reference as it lists both botanical and common names of many of our plants.

Our friendly staff are also available to help you with any questions.

Each plant has a descriptive label and image specific to South Australian conditions to help you choose what is right for your garden.

  • height
  • spread
  • common name
  • flower colour
  • soil requirements
  • rainfall requirements
  • frost tolerance
  • flowering season.
