PLANT SPECIES LIST FOR THE SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS

PLEASE NOTE: This list is under construction. It is not complete. At present the list is for mainly sanstone based soils. This list in no way infers that any particular plant listed will grow well in your particular part of the Southern Highlands, as the soil, aspect, rainfall, treecover etc. will vary. You should use this list as a guide and look for more information on the species of interest by coming to one of our meetings.
