Plant Lists for Hobart Suburbs and Further Afield

These lists give plants that have been recorded from suburban areas around Hobart and further afield during botanical surveys. Choose from these plants if you want a totally local garden, or use this as a guide to which plants might grow well. Be aware that even within quite small distances there can be marked differences in soil and habitat - moist or dry, sand or clay, for example - so read the descriptions in the main plant listings to refine this list for your garden. Needless to say many plants not recorded in the area will also thrive in your garden. Also note that the lists give no indication of how common a plant is in the area, and that even common plants might not have been recorded by botanists in their surveys.

If you would like a list for an area that isn't covered yet, send a messgae via the contact page.
