Native Plant Search

Our plant database contains over 1,300 Western Australian native plants. Links are provided where possible to FloraBase where you’ll find further information about each species.

Not all plants in this database are available from each Friends of Kings Park Plant Sale.  Plant sale species lists change for each sale.  Unfortunately we are unable to take orders, but you could contact the Friends office to request plant species you’d like to see propagated for a future sale.

The information provided here is a general guide only: plants are sensitive to such factors as soil types, water volumes and other geographical factors.
