Australian flora is extraordinarily diverse, beautiful, hardy and drought resistant. Despite this, the overwhelming majority of flowers, plants and trees used in Australian homes, gardens and landscapes are “exotic” – that is, they are not native to Australia. Austem’s mission is to establish the rightful place of native flora in the Australian home, garden and landscape.
Native Plant Project shares the beauty of Australian native plants with gardeners and garden lovers everywhere – and encourage Australians to start their own project, large or small.
An e-magazine inspires and educates with articles on private and public gardens, expert tips, advice and creative projects of artists, florists, landscapers and architects, while a carefully grown selection of native plant varieties can be shipped direct to your door via the e-nursery.
