Our Plants

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

Pseudopanax arboreus

It is fast-growing and often found in regenerating forest. Its leaves consist of five to seven leaflets, arranged like fingers around a central stalk. The leaflets are toothed and leathery. In winter five-finger produces clusters of purple-black berries that are known to be relished by birds.  In mid-winter to early-spring produces small, white flowers flushed with red-pink, adding a touch of delicate beauty to the garden.  This versatile plant is very hardy and can be pruned to any size, making it an excellent choice for smaller gardens.  The plant is not self-fertile.
