I know we can grow broms but what other plants do you have that can grow in South Florida?
One of my garden buddies needs help at her zoo and posted this on the Florida forum. Any help you could give would be most appreciated.
Thanks so much

Hi coffeemom,

I don't think Koalas eat bromeliads so I think you would be better asking members of the Garden Web Australia forum under "Australian native plants", or send an Email to Sydney's Taronga Park Zoo, they could better advise on suitable plants for Koalas because although they eat gum leaves, they only eat specific types.

Hope this helps,

Sorry everyone, I had to add the word bromeliads to make it all legal didn't I?

All the best, Nev.
