Native Plants Queensland encourages the use of botanical names for our native plants in preference to common names, as these can be quite different from one locality to another.

As a result of ongoing research carried out by botanists and taxonomists, it is inevitable that there will be changes to these botanical names as new information comes to light. We have attempted to list these changes as they become known.
