Looking for trees? There are larger trees such as Podocarpus elatus, Brown Pine, both male & female forms, with its edible plum-like fruits developing on the female plant after fertilising., also medium sized trees such as Ficus coronata, the Sandpaper Fig, whose leaves resemble sandpaper or Backhousia myrtifolia, and the variably sized but mostly smaller Podocarpus lawrencei. Mountain Plum Pine, both male & female forms. 

If you have a shady, well composted spot consider the shrub Austromyrtus tenuifolia with its edible berries. Or for a sunny or partly shaded spot in well-drained soil consider the beautiful prostrate Persoonia chamaepitys.

We have lots of a favourite groundcover, Chrysocephalum apiculatum, Common Everlasting or Yellow Buttons.
