Burnley Plant Guide



The Burnley Plant Guide is an indexed, searchable database of plants that has been developed to support the learning of plants by students at the University of Melbourne, particularly those who undertake courses at its Burnley Campus. The database contains information on over 2,700 plant species or cultivars, and more than 7,500 images illustrating plant recognition characters, plant habitat, form, and use in the landscape. The plants included are based on those taught in undergraduate and postgraduate subjects and are for the most part, common in cultivation in south-eastern Australia. As well as landscape plants, the BPG contains a limited number of horticultural and environmental weeds while, to enrich student experience, and for general interest, a number of less common exotic and Australian plants have also been included.
