Abstract

•Biofilter plant communities were surveyed in three cities along a chronosequence.•Root mass and length were greater in biofilters located in an arid climate (Perth).•Older biofilters had lower biodiversity, but not functional diversity.•Maintenance practices appear to retain functional diversity over time.•Biofilter design should reflect goals of landscape planners and stormwater managers.
