Trees and shrubs

South Australian trees and shrubs come in all shapes and sizes. They are colourful, hardy and provide a haven for birds and nectar-loving native insects. There are native trees and shrubs that flower at every time of the year – so you can have colour in your garden all year round. Others bear fruit and seeds and are increasingly popular as interest in edible Australian plants grows.

Homeowners often ask our staff which native tree would best suit their garden. Common requirements are for shade, a windbreak, to suit small spaces, or screening trees for privacy.

Some of our most popular plants are flowering shrubs that grow up to 1.5 metres tall, including bottlebrush, grevillias and emu bush. We also grow one of the biggest selections of Eucalypts in South Australia.

We have a huge range of seedlings readily available – from small flowering shrubs to mighty red gums. And if we don’t have it we’ll grow it for you.

State Flora also grows native plants for large projects such as revegetation, landscaping and parks. We regularly advise planners and horticultural professionals on these large-scale projects.
