The Australian Plants Society Wilson Park (Berwick) Inc. is dedicated to promoting the growing and conservation of Australian native plants in gardens, community areas and their original environments.

We are a native garden group with members in Berwick, Cranbourne, Narre Warren and surrounds.

We hold monthly meetings with a speaker (the variety of topics have included plant species, insects, birds and garden design), a monthly working bee in the Wilson Park garden and some weekend garden visits. We also have an annual Spring Plant Sale on the first Saturday in September at Wilson Botanic Park.

The photos in our gallery page shows the native plants in the Wilson Park car park, which was designed by the group 15 years ago. It is actively maintained and planted by our members in monthly working bees. 

Our Emblem: The Running Postman (Kennedia prostrata) was chosen as the emblem of the Wilson Park group.

It is indigenous to the area, and many of our members have plants in their gardens sourced from an original wild plant found near Narre Warren train station.

The leaves are three lobed like a clover, and the bright red pea flowers are out from April to December. It is a nectar source for butterflies, a food source for caterpillars and provides shelter for lizards.
