Plants on the Block

Another project that started off as a casual list...these plants are mostly natives and specific to the local area. We started many years ago catalogeuing the abundant species but soon realised it was more fun finding something less common. Many are highly valued species found in the Howard Sand Plains site of conservation significance. Sadly, these species are dwindling in number due to land-clearing and increasing competition from both endemic native species and introduced species (weeds).
