Plant Database

Over 2500 plants for the Canberra region

The ANPS Plant Database gives a description of over 2,500 plants suitable for this region. Most include horticultural requirements and photos.

Many are available at the society plant sales in spring and autumn.

Descriptions differ in two ways from those given elsewhere in Australia for the same plant. Where there is no mention of frost hardiness it means the plant will generally survive down to minus 7C. Also the plant sizes given are what can be expected in the Canberra region so may be only half that for more benign climates and soils.
