2018 Indie Book Awards Illustrated Non-fiction Book of the Year

Australia has long been known as home to the towering gum and the gnarly banksia. Australian natives are as emblematic as they are adaptable but Native takes an old subject (Australian natives) and gives it a complete makeover. This book surveys the ways native trees, shrubs, flowers and foliage can be put to surprising and beautiful uses by some of the most creative people working with plants today.

Interviews with celebrated landscape designers, artists and gardeners – including Fiona Brockhoff, Janet Laurence and Tracey Deep – bring to light so many ways to celebrate the sculptural natives that shape our everyday spaces.

This richly illustrated book is the ideal source when seeking the perfect feature plant for a space of any size. With stunning photography of gardens old and new, this book captures the most creatively inspiring Australian plants and the people who work with them.

  • Native - Fodder for your gardening brain

    by on

    Excellent book if you are interested in either native plants or gardening with australian natives.
    The scope of the book is broad and covers many facets of interpretation on this subject, from gardens, to artists and designers who take their inspiration from australian native plants and landscapes, then drilling down to look closely at individual species. It is now a prize possession in my gardening reference library, I like it a whole lot.
