Water-wise, local plants for the Perth coastal region

This guide provides simple yet inspiring garden advice for people living in the
coastal suburbs of Perth and beyond. Water wise, local native plants are suggested
as attractive replacements for introduced plants that can be harmful to our local
coastal landscapes. Prepared by Perth NRM.
