Photographs: Seedlings

Seedlings of natives and weeds commonly found in Sydney backyards.

Sometimes it is difficult to know what a seedling will grow into. We have a selection of baby native plants and weeds below, illustrating what they are most likely* to grow into as they mature. *Note: We can only make an educated guess as to what these plants are, as they vary from area to area. For expert advice, ask your local council.
