Semi-Herbaceous Planting Guide & Tips

Plant Seasonality

Semi-herbaceous plants are not traditionally used in Australian agriculture, however studies of the hairy canary clover (a semi-herbaceous species) suggest they may be suitable for environments with minimal rainfall. Semi-herbaceous plants like the Tricolour Canna, Tropicanna or Bulrush flourish in hot overhead sun, so if you’re looking for a plant that will thrive in the hot Australian sunshine, take a look at our collection of semi-herbaceous plants.
