Following the apparent success of the 'Capture Your Friends' poster series, Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd collaborated with the National Botanic Gardens, Canberra, in the 1980s to produce various series of posters focusing on some of the native plants of Australia. These posters, and associated factsheets, were sent out to schools by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd.

The first series of posters, produced in 1984 and continued in 1986, focused on the floral emblems of Australia. Museums Victoria holds several posters from this series, including a colour poster featuring photographs of all of Australia's national and state floral emblems; a black and white poster featuring line drawings of and information about all of Australia's national and state floral emblems; a poster featuring a colour photograph of Golden Wattle (Australia's floral emblem); and a poster featuring Pink or Common Heath (Victoria's floral emblem).

Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd, in conjunction with the National Botanic Gardens, also produced another series of posters of native Australia plants. Some of these posters are also part of Museums Victoria's collection, including the Painted Apple-berry; Native Fuchsia; Banksia; and Sand Heath Bottlebrush. These posters were originally accompanied by factsheets, which the museum does not hold.
