The project has identified and evaluated a total of nineteen species for their potential as commercial cut flower and foliage products across three different growing regions on the Atherton Tablelands. The ability of the plants to grow in the three different regions and the perceived market demand for the products have been the two most important factors for selection of suitable species.
This publication explains the methodology of the project and reports on the species selected for commercialisation, together with the implications for these selections in a fledgling industry set to develop on the Atherton Tablelands and surrounds.
