Much of the Perth area has very sandy soil.
Do you find some plants grow better than others?

Which few grow best for you?

Natives are great - they attract birdlife too! Gravillea and Banksia have really lovely flowers, they thrive in the summer, and need little water, if any.
Yes, I agree Slang, natives are great however I have a lot of luck with succulents and cacti as they need little water and seem to thrive in our sandy soils -this time of year I can almost "see" them growing.

Believe it or not, Cosmos loves sandy soil - which is lucky for me because this is my favourite flower!
When the soil is built up with good-quality compost and mulch, almost anything can be grown in Perth. In my opinion it's the summer heat that's the biggest problem. Recently we've been focusing on native plants in our garden, which have been doing quite well. Others which have survived and flourished are toughies such as lavender, geraniums and even daisies.
