Bird-attracting Trees

Due to their bushy structure, leaf density and flowering capabilities, many Australian natives are great options when planting for increased birdlife.

Layered landscapes which embrace diversity of foliage, flower, colour and texture, can often feature a bird attracting tree or two if you are looking to increase the presence of bird life in your landscape.  Many native trees already provide visual year-round interest due to their brightly coloured flowers and attractive grey-green foliage but these can also attract nesting and nectar eating birds. Here is a sample of trees that do just that. 

On our website, look for this symbol  to denote trees that will encourage bird life into your landscape.

This is an attractive densely canopied tree that produces densely packed powdery-red flowers that are shaped like small bells during the summer months. This is a stunning native tree that is bird, butterfly and insect attracting. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 100L
This tree has a smooth trunk with cream to grey coloured bark which sheds in flakes. It has narrow shaped green leaves and as it matures, forms a large open canopy. From Autumn to Spring, an abundance of red flowers appear in clusters of three attracting a variety of birdlife. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L
This is a small to medium sized shade tree offering glossy green foliage and pretty clusters of salmon pink, bell-shaped flowers in Summer. As a grafted tree, it is more compact in size which makes it highly suitable for domestic landscapes. Flowers are bird attracting. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 100L
A beautiful, tall growing tree with a distinctive, often powdery white to grey coloured bark which curls and flakes off in spring. Its leaves are green, long and slender with an amazing, strong lemon fragrance when crushed. Its strong scent is a distinguishing attribute, with the essential oils produced from this variety often being used in fragrances as well as insect repellents. In summer and autumn, feathery white flowers appear, making it a good source of food for honey bees. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 100L
This Australian native tree is small to medium in height with a compact, spreading habit. Similar to 'Rosea', it produces large pink, bird attracting flowers from late winter to spring and grows to a similar height with a good canopy. Foliage is olive-grey in colour and spear shaped. This variety performs well in areas of low humidity and it should be noted that it is prone to limb drop in areas susceptible to windy conditions. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L
A versatile, fast growing shrub with fine, deep purple foliage forming a graceful, weeping habit with its purple-pink new growth. In late spring and summer, bronze buds open to a profusion of long-lasting snowy white flowers.
