Useful Native Plant Identification Books

Here are three readily available and easy to use native plant identification books useful in South-east Queensland.
  • Wild plants of Greater Brisbane - Queensland Museum
  • Noosa Native Plants - Noosa Integrated Catchment Association Inc.
  • Mountains to Mangroves (there is a new edition available that combines the previously available two volume set) - Logan River Branch of Society for Growing Australian Plants
These are all photographic plant identification books and group the plant species into their supporting habitats/ecosystems. Easy to flip through to identify and no keys or fancy terms necessary.

Great reference texts and if you're keen it is a great idea to carry at least one of them in the field with you (if you're back can handle it) to help expand your knowledge of native plants in South-east Queensland! Pin It
