Australian Native Plants Nursery

Australian Native Plants Nursery - Australian Native Plants Nursery is a retail nursery specializing in ornamental trees and shrubs for Californian gardens. Our nursery grows many plants from the Australian protea family, such as banksia, grevillea, hakea and isopogon as well as small eucalypts, acacias and leptospermums. We also grow South African leucadendrons, leucospermums and proteas. We travel to Australia each year in search of new species to introduce into Californian gardens. We contract grow for Botanical Gardens, Zoos, commercial landscapes, cut flower growers and special garden projects. Our plants are available here at the nursery in Casitas Springs (Ventura) as well as Botanic Garden plant sales and selected nurseries in Carpenteria, Los Angeles and San Diego.

We have a large range of horticultural reference and design books on Australian plants for purchase or mail order. We also have seed and plants available for mail order.

We offer consultancy and design services. The nursery is operated by owner Jo O'Connell, an Australian horticulturist from Sydney.
