Appendix 2. Plants suitable for revegetation Plants in bold are those which should form the bulk of any large area of planting, due to their hardiness in the dune environment and ease of establishment. Other plants may form the greater part of plantings which are intended to improve diversity. Some plants are also listed here which are more suitable for native landscaping or creek banks.
