Plant list - West Hobart/Mt Stuart

These are plants that have been recorded as occurring naturally within the West Hobart and Mt Stuart suburban areas (including Knocklofty) and that we grow in the nursery. Choose from these plants if you want a totally local garden, or use this as a guide on where to start choosing plants. Be aware that even within quite small distances there can be marked differences in soil and habitat - moist or dry, 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.
