Some of the most unique, beautiful, hardy and adaptable plants are found in Australia. At more than 20,000 native plant varieties (species) out in the wild and many more still unclassified; the Australian landscape has evolved to produce a vast array of trees, shrubs, wildflowers, grasses, palms, flowers, exotic and rare species seen anywhere in the world.
Not only are there a vast variety of plants native to Australia; but overtime through evolution they have also adapted to Australia's very often harsh and fluctuating climate. From the hot and humid deserts and drought stricken regions to the colder weather areas of this vast land; plants have evolved to be extremely hardy and tough.
