Book Description

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.


Reviews

'Native is a beautifully designed and thoughtfully set out guide to design with Australian plants. It is a horticultural reference source, yet it is also a design guide, showing the use of native plants in settings less familiar, expanding the genre of native garden from dusty bush gardens, to highly cultivated and organised design settings. Beyond gardens, it also demonstrates the extraordinary breadth and beauty of our native foliage and flowers through many forms of design across a number of mediums..'  --  The Garden Drum.
