Australian Native Ground Cover Plants

Ground Cover plants are crucial for any garden, providing a lush, low-maintenance layer that can help suppress weeds, retain soil moisture, and add aesthetic value. Australian native ground covers thrive in local conditions, making them a low-maintenance and beautiful choice for gardeners. Here, we explore some of the best Australian native ground cover plants that you can consider for your garden.

Dichondra repens (Kidney Weed)

Dichondra repens, commonly known as Kidney Weed, is a versatile and hardy ground cover. Its small, kidney-shaped leaves form a dense, green carpet that thrives in both sunny and shady areas. This variety is best suited for high-traffic areas as they can withstand some trampling, making it an ideal choice for paths and underfoot zones.

Myoporum parvifolium (Creeping Boobialla)

Myoporum parvifolium, also known as Creeping Boobialla, is a fast-growing ground cover known for its small, white or pink flowers and glossy green leaves. Its robust nature can form a thick mat that helps to suppress weeds, providing a lush, green cover that requires little attention once established.

Grevillea 'Bronze Rambler'

Grevillea 'Bronze Rambler' is a tough and attractive ground cover with bronze-tinted foliage and clusters of red flowers. This plant is not only beautiful but also functional, as it provides excellent erosion control on slopes and banks. Its vibrant flowers are known to attract birds, adding life and movement to your garden.

Kennedia prostrata (Running Postman)

Commonly known as Running Postman, Kennedia prostrata is a striking ground cover with bright red pea flowers and lush green foliage. It is a great choice for adding a pop of colour to your garden floor and thrives in full sun to partial shade. Its sprawling habit can quickly cover bare ground and provide an effective ground cover solution.

Viola hederacea (Native Violet)

Viola hederacea or Native Violet is a charming ground cover, featuring small, heart-shaped leaves and delicate purple and white flowers. With an ability to thrive in shady, moist areas, it is perfect for adding a soft, green layer to shaded garden beds.

Chrysocephalum Apiculatum

Chrysocephalum apiculatum, known as Yellow Buttons, is a hardy ground cover with bright yellow, button-like flowers and silvery-grey foliage. Its low-growing habit and cheerful blooms make it a delightful addition to any garden.
