Research Area

The Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden is proud of its wonderful collection of eremophilas of around 155 varieties. Eremophila means 'desert loving', so most are found in regions of up to 300mm rainfall.

The flowers vary in form and in colour depending on whether they are pollinated by birds or insects. Birds pollinate yellow, red and pink flowers which are usually long and tubular. Insects pollinate white, purple and blue flowers that are flatter in form (the most common group).
