Our Plants

Grown locally, seed sourced native species that are strong and thrive into the future.

Carex dipsacea

A great NZ native perennial grass that forms a densely tufted clump of upright foliage that has a pleasant light green and brown colouring.  Like many grasses, this is best seen when mass planted or in large landscaping projects. The flowering stems are shorter than the leaves. It grows best in a damp to moist soil and needs adequate summer moisture. A hardy choice that is tolerant of both wind and frost. Plant in full sun to part shade.
