A mediterranean climate is defined by rainy winters and hot, dry summers where drought can last for months. Many plants are dormant during the summer. The mediterranean climate exists in countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea as well as areas of California, Australia, Chile and South Africa.
The Mediterranean Garden Society Western Australia (WA) branch has developed this website to assist people to grow climate appropriate plants in WA. Members share their experience of suitable plants for the mediterranean climate areas of Western Australia (Perth through to Esperance).
