Prominent features of the Australian flora are adaptations to aridity and fire which include scleromorphy (type of vegetation that has hard leaves and short internodes -the distance between leaves along the stem) and serotiny (seed release occurs in response to an environmental trigger - the most common and best studied trigger is fire). These adaptations are common in species from the large and well-known families Proteaceae (Banksia and Grevillea), Myrtaceae ( Eucalyptus - gum trees), and Fabaceae (Acacia  - wattle).

Native plants are usually more hardy the exotic plants and can withstand longer periods without water and fertiliser.
