In The Garden

The challenge is to develop creative and uniquely Australian gardens that reflect a lot less of the historic European influences with their high water demand.
Succulent plants can play a small but important role here.

Historically, while succulents from other parts of the world have become commonplace in gardens, until recently little attempt has been made to introduce native succulent plants into garden design.
Creative use of at least some native succulent plants can achieve a very appealing low-maintenance garden.

Gardens which suit most succulent plants include those with seasonally dry areas; stony, sandy or nutrient-deficient soils; windy or coastal areas; salty soils; and areas where only bore water is available.

While there are numerous examples below, more can be found in other parts of the website, notably with the Calandrinia Article.
