Plant list - Alpine

A large area of Tasmania is alpine, and these are plants that grow up in these wild, cold extreme regions. Many will grow in a normal garden as long as they are in a cool spot and are kept moist - one thing that anyone who has done any bushwalks in the alpine areas of Tasmania knows is that it is wet up there. Most, if not all, of these plants grow well in containers as well, which mimics the rocky, soil-poor conditions in which they grow naturally.
