Located as you enter the landscape/garden supplies strip along Beltana Road, Pialligo, is a great nursery for native plants. Cool Country Natives has a broad range of really attractive native plants. This nursery specialises in stocking unusual and hard-to-get plants. It is well organised, reasonably priced, and the staff are helpful. My favourite plants include the pretty correa with its bell-shaped flowers, the exotic flannel flower (although in flower for only a short time each year), grevillea fireworks with its explosion of floral colour, the elegant paper daisy, mint bushes, native violets and native geraniums.
