Native plants for your garden

Titoki, Alectryon excelsus.

Do you live in the Wellington region, want to have native plants in your garden, but don’t know what to choose?

Then the Greater Wellington Regional Council has produced just what you need: the Wellington Regional Native Plant Guide.  I attended the recent launch of the revised 2010 edition.

Wellington Regional Native Plant Guide.

Lists are provided of native plants ideal for 14 different sub-regions, from the southern coasts to the Kapiti dunelands to the northern Wairarapa.

As the guide says:

PLANTS ARE GREAT,

NATIVES ARE BETTER,

ECO-SOURCED IS THE BEST

    Good one Florence.
    Lots of people are interested in native plants, but there are so many to chose from, and only some species are well-suited to a given area. GW’s resource helps address this.
