Indigenous plants for Ballarat gardens

For information on small trees, shrubs and ground covers suitable for Ballarat's urban gardens visit Indigenous Plants for Ballarat Gardens.

The forests, grasslands and wetlands around Ballarat are home to many beautiful and important indigenous plants. Locally native plants can be a real asset to your garden, providing colour, movement and texture, supporting populations of native butterflies, birds and other wildlife and requiring little maintenance once established. Why not consider growing some of them in your garden?
