Canberra Plant Selector

The Canberra Plant Selector Tool allows you to look up information on a wide range of plants. Over time, more plants will be added to this tool.

By being more aware of the growth habit, sun, shade and frost tolerances and the water requirements of plants you can choose plants suited to your garden and save water without restricting your choice of garden design.

The less water drops a plant has, the less water it needs to remain healthy.

Your local nursery can also provide advice on water-efficient and drought-tolerant plants suitable for your garden.

Select your plant by ‘Common name’ or ‘Botanical name’ and press ‘Find’.
