South East Queensland is generally described as a subtropical climate. Summers are humid with rainfall, winters cool and dry. There is not much of a spring or autumn resulting in the natural flora and garden plants best showing off their inate beauty during late summer for the tropical plants, and in September-October for a short spring bloom.
The Ipswich Plant Expo celebrates the subtropical climate for Queensland… covering the regions of Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Ipswich, Gold Coast and north to Gympie. Districts such as the Northern Rivers of New South Wales and down to Sydney are also embraced for this garden fair.
Subtropical and tropical plants, as well as warm temperate plants (sometimes marginal in the average subtropical garden) are all present at this event.
