In Wollongong, the GreenPlan scheme run by Council offers a huge range of local species, as well as native plants from further afield that will do well in local conditions. Shellharbour and Kiama also have council nurseries that stock local species. Staff can provide advice on plants suitable for your garden and verge.

|Dwarf bleeding heart (Homalanthus stillingifolius) prefers|
shade, and forms a beautiful low shrub
