Coastal NZ Native Plants
When planting New Zealand Native plants it is crucial to choose the right plant for the right place. Along the wind beaten coastlines of Otago, a lot of the native plants thrive, especially in the low frost areas. Depending on what you want to achieve in your coastal garden – Pohutakawas put on a spectacular show of red in Summer and we recommend Metrosiderous excellsa Vibrance. For shrubs for screening or shelter Hebe speciosa varieties, Grisilenea (broadleaf), Pseudopanax, Myoporum (Ngaio) Corokia and Cordylines will all help achieve this. Reinga Reinga lilies (Arthropodiums) put a spectacular show in summer with their pretty star-like white flowers. Opeki walking track around Blueskin Bay is a fantastic example of coastal native planting and a lovely walk.
