NOSSA has produced:

South Australia’s Native Orchids

“the CD for the South Australian Orchid arrived today and I am currently having a look at it.  May I say it is brilliant!  It is one of the best plant guides that I have seen with the level of detail, set up, language and use-ability.  I wish reference guides of this type were available during my peak time of field surveys.”

Start With the Leaves

In September 2011, Heritage Bushcare published Start with the Leaves: A simple guide to common orchids and lilies of the Adelaide Hills by Robert Lawrence.

Front Cover

This book is for anyone interested in orchids from the complete novice, who would like to know about plants, to landholders, and bushwalkers through to bush-carers and professionals completing biological surveys.

The book features:

  • 50 orchids seen in the Adelaide Hills, most of them common
  • Lilies, bulbs and some weeds which can be confused with orchids
  • Eight easy to see categories of leaves indicated by a distinctive icon
  • Coloured pages for each leaf category
  • Photographs in natural settings showing the variations within each species
  • A life-size representation of each flower
  • Check list for identifying other orchids (the same principles of identification can be used for other plants)
Though written for the Adelaide Hills (ie, the Southern Lofty Region) because of the plants dealt with, it is also relevant for the following regions:
  • Northern Lofty
  • Kangaroo Island
  • South East – 42 of the 50 orchids featured
  • western region of Victoria – 41 of the 50 orchids featured
