These distinctive cards depict Australian native plants intertwined with features of the suburban streetscape.

The photographs reproduced on these cards are selected from a survey of Australian native plants in the Melbourne suburb of Northcote.

Once the flower rich land of the Wurundjeri Aboriginal people, this early suburb of Melbourne, like much of Australian suburbia, was cleared of most vegetation. This original, pristine, grassy woodland, was quickly forgotten and replaced by housing, industry and European plant species.

Now, however, although once exiled to the bush, many native plants have returned to our suburbs.These cards record some of this contemporary transformation.

Card 1/ Native Grasses
Card 2/ Small-leafed clematis –Clematis microphylla
