Our Plants

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

Kunzea robusta

Kanuka is not grazed by any livestock or browsing animals, this makes them good to plant in regenerative areas where livestock is currently grazed As the Kanuka become established, they provide a canopy for more tender or slow-growing species.  Grows on soils that contain rock fragments and in areas with steep slopes, and hard rock.  The flower provides a source of nectar for native bees, birds, gecko, flies, moths and beetles. Similar to Manuka tree but its leaves are softer to touch and is often larger.
