For the commercial production of wildflowers, canopy management, or the manipulation of plant growth, aims to produce high yields of long, straight stems with unblemished, high quality flowers. The methods to achieve this vary, and you need an understanding of plant growth habit to select the right method. This manual will be a big help here!

 

Given the vast range of products grown by the Australian wildflower industry, it’s impossible to design a single canopy management strategy which will apply to all plants. So this manual provides information on the general and specific growth habit of the most important Australian wildflower products, including the following:

 

Actinotus (Flannel flower) 

Banksia species with a separate profile for Banksia plagiocarpa  

Brunia and Berzelia  

Ceratopetalum gummiferum (NSW Christmas Bush)  

Eucalypt flowers 

Grevillea 

Leucadendron 

Leucospermum  

Protea cynaroides (King Protea)  

Protea hybrids  

Telopea speciosissima (Waratah)
