The Nurso's online garden centre carries an extensive range of outdoor plants. We have everything you need to create your low maintenance, easy care, and dare we say – tropical gardening project!
Outdoor Plants Perfect for Southeast Queensland
It is getting HOT in Brisbane. If the last few weeks are anything to go by a full sun plant will be the perfect addition to your outdoor space.
Native plants are known to tolerate full sun so are an easy care choice. They are drought resistant and perfect for the hearty Queensland climate.
We recommend - Lilly Pillys. They’re a fast growing, native plant that can reach up to one metre a year. They can be turned into stunning native hedge or can be maintained as a stunning small bush in the backyard.
In addition to native plants, The Nurso's online gardening store offers a range of tropical plants that will look perfect in your outdoor space. From giant bird or paradise plants to the classic cordyline pink diamond - we have you covered with our beautiful range of tropical plants perfect for Southeast Queensland.

Perfect Plants for Privacy
When you’re going for a dip in the backyard pool there’s nothing like a bit of privacy! The Nurso’s range of outdoor plants mean you are spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing your outdoor plants for the pool area.
When you plant a hedge you want to make sure it going to create a ‘green screen’ giving you an extra layer of privacy outside. A low maintenance hedging plant that we recommend starting with is the robust Red Robin. They are known to bloom in the spring with fragrant white flowers and are also known to withstand hot weather and tropical storms.
The classic Lady Palm is a popular hedging plant around the world. Originally cultivated in Japan these palms can grow quite large. Although, in Queensland harsh sunlight you'll want to ensure the Lady Palm's can enjoy partial shade so they their leaves don't start to tarnish or fade.
Another plant that is popular choice for creating a beautiful natural screen in the backyard is the Mock Orange bush. This plant can grow up to 4 meters tall so is a great choice for adding an element of privacy.
