List of insect attracting plants for QLD

Postby Sean » Fri Feb 22, 2013 12:13 pm

I could not find a list of native insect attracting plants that were suitable for Queensland, so I made one. All these should be suitable for tropical areas with summer rainfall. Most should provide plenty of food for frogs. Suggestions welcome.

Annuals and Perennials
Abelmoschus moschatus
Alpinia coerulea
Centratherum punctatum
Cleome viscosa
Dianella caerulea
Lomandra longifolia
Nymphea crenata
Nymphea indica
Ottelia oalifolia

Alexia ruscifolia
Callicarpa longifolia
Callicarpa pedunculata
Canthium oleifolium
Capparis spinosa
Carissa lanceolata
Carissa ovata
Gossypium australe
Hibiscus diversifolius
Hibiscus heterophyllus
Murraya paniculata
Osbeckia australiana
