Vegetation zones in the Lammermoor Native Gardens
Lammermoor Creek plants
 
Lammermoor Creek runs through the gardens from the Kedron Park wetlands and into the sea below Lioness Park and is still environmentally clean despite draining a rapidly growing urban area. Except for the driest years it is a permanent creek.
 
   
 
Cottonwood
Hibiscus tiliaceus
  Mangrove Fern
Acrostichum speciosum
Found naturally throughout the Pacific tropical region and grown elsewhere as a seaside ornamental. The cotton tree is salt tolerant and thrives around mangrove margins, coastal creeks and lagoons.
 
Found in mangroves, tidal flats, brackish swamps and on coastal cliffs. In mangroves it is usually found in colonies or clumps on the landward margin in high intertidal zones where there is some freshwater input.
