NATIVE: Art and Design with Australian Plants
Native offers planting palettes and design themes, gardening techniques and inspiration for an original and exciting perspective on the very best form, flowers and foliage of Australian plants.
Kate Herd takes an adventurous approach to planting her urban and country gardens. She experiments with pruning and training a variety of native plants, combining them with exotics in dry-garden plantings, and using architectural and subtropical species to create lush but tough gardens.
Jela Ivankovic-Waters' formative experience of Western Australia's bushland, desert and coastal landscapes left her mesmerised by how native species performed in their habitats. She realised how widely they could be used in all sorts of places and ways - especially the admirable banksia: so many forms, funky foliage, mighty flowers and resilience.
In this book, Kate and Jela explore wondrous versatility and captivating beauty of Australia's plants far beyond the familiar 'bush garden' aesthetic.Kate Herd & Jela Ivankovic-Waters
