What we grow

Plant height can vary depending on the growing environment. The height categories below are guides only. Many plants can be pruned to keep them to the desired height.

Factsheets are available for most plants listed.  A small number of factsheets are still in development and will be added soon.

Don’t forget to check out how council has revitalised the Gordon White Library precinct using local native plants grown at the MNEC.
