Plant list - Threatened Plants

Many of the plants that we sell are rare or have limited distributions, and have been listed by the Tasmanian Government as threatened in the state (though some of them are widepsread on the mainland). It is an important role of Plants of Tasmania Nursery to maintain a selection of these species in cultivation, in part to provide back up to natural populations.


Click on the species name to go to the listing for the plant in the main alphabetical catalogue. The listing after the common name is the species' status in Tasmania. The link is to the Tasmanian Government information sheet for the species, which provides a lot of interesting and useful information about the plants in the bush.

The main alphabetical catalogue has cultivation details, prices, and a link to photos of each species.
