Thank you Graham for your list of flowering trees.

That made me think, if we were to designate a special "bird and butterfly"
area of the home garden, which native flowering plants ( preferably not
growing too tall) would people suggest we plant.  Is the best idea to go to
a local nursery?

Butterflies and bees seem to like herbs in flower, such as sage, rosemary,
lavendar and variegated time.

I have seen Eastern Spinebills (the 'upside down birds') on bottlebrush and
grevillea, but I think bottlebrush needs some room around it to grow.
