A key challenge for greening Australia’s urban environments is to ensure that future plantings are made with trees, shrubs and turf that can tolerate the climate conditions that will occur in the near future.

The Which Plant Where program is a five-year research program that will investigate how well current landscaping species will cope under the more extreme climates that Australia’s cities will face and investigate opportunities for new species and varieties for the urban context.

The idea of the Which Plant Where project was developed through the 202020Vision national Growing the Seeds tour in 2015. It is being funded via the Hort Frontiers Green Cities Fund, a strategic partnership initiative developed by Hort Innovation that addresses the biggest challenges facing the future of Australian horticulture.
