WA Native Plants

The use of Western Australian native plants in home gardens will help conserve the flora of Western Australia and preserve our natural water resources.

The Friends of Kings Park propagate native plants in their nursery within Kings Park. These high quality, rare and unusual  plants are available at the Friends quarterly plant sales with many plants not available from commercial nurseries.

The Backyard Botanicals garden which surrounds Zamia Café at May Drive Parkland, Kings Park provides a visual display of the best plants to grow in Perth gardens.

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.

Please select the characteristics you would like or type a colour or design feature in the search space.
