Which Plant Where?

 

Where?

Finding new opportunities for urban green space for the cities of tomorrow.

When?

Testing landscape plants for suitability and opportunity now, tomorrow and in decades to come.

Why?

Which Plant Where is about selecting the right plants for the right urban space with an eye on the future.

The Right Plant In The Right Place - Now and Tomorrow

The Which Plant Where program is a five-year series of research that will find out where current favourites are unlikely to thrive under the more extreme climates that Australian cities face, learn from past successes, and stress-test major landscape species to find opportunities for new species and varieties to be planted.
