Native Ground Cover Plants Melbourne

We are spoilt for choice when it comes to attractive and prosperous native plants in Australia. Beyond their moisture-retaining, space-filling, and often aesthetically pleasing attributes, planting this plant species can enhance your garden’s environment by attracting local birds, insects and reptiles to the area and improving the ecosystem.

As with any flora, native plants should be planted in weed-free and well-mulched settings. This will set them up for long-term health and fragrance. Many of the top-recommended Australian native plants are chosen because they are drought and flood-resistant and suit a wide range of soil types and harsh climates.

  • Kidneyweed (Dichondra Repens) – Fast spreading and low profile Dichondra Repens native ground cover is a beautiful deep-green landscaping option.

Low-maintenance Plants for Australian Gardens
