The most amazing, surreal, beautiful, curious, weird, archetectural plant you will ever see. You either love it or hate it. The "toothed lancewood" - transformative from the juvenile version to the mature state.
Carex Testacea, stunning, moving, golden, timeless
Mount Cook Lily
And the majestic NZ tree fern. So gracious and commanding
Black Adder, what a striking flax you are
Libertia ixioides or Taupo Blaze. Amazing plant, goes a stunning golden orange in the winter. Sadly doesnt flower with it beautiful white orchid like flowers in the UK.
And Coprosma. How alien, how lively, how melancholic
I am a BIG hebe fan. And nothing is more amazing than the "red edge" that just gets redder in the chill of winter.
