Our Plants

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

Cordyline australis

A distinctive New Zealand tree that grows all over the country, but prefers wet, open areas like swamps. Palm-like tree with an erect trunk branching into tufts of tough long narrow pointed leaves and with bushy sprays of small white sweetly-scented flowers and bluish-white berries that birds love to eat.  The bark is thick and tough like cork, and a huge fleshy taproot anchors the tree firmly into the ground. Attractive en-masse, in mixed plantings or as a specimen.
