Aciphylla scott-thomsonii Aciphylla scott-thomsonii

The largest of the Spaniard Grasses, this is native to sub-alpine montane grasslands on the South Island of New Zealand where it does experience snow.  The plant forms large tussocks whose needle sharp blue-green leaves can reach 3' long.   Perhaps best of all, it has a spike of soft yellow flowers up to 9' tall.  Not a true grass but in the carrot family.

Arthropodium candidum 'Purpureum' Arthropodium candidum 'Purpureum'

New Zealand Rock Lily.  This is a neat little bronze-leafed version of a very easy plant.  Typically inhabiting rocky sunny spots, this does great in the garden where a little bit of small scale detail is needed.  Small white flowers on 8"-12" stems.  This will clump and self-sow a bit.  Deciduous.

Astelia chathamica Astelia chathamica

Silver Spears. Very nice sculptural plant with inimitable form and color. This will get 3' tall or larger if supremely happy and the color is best in bright, light shade or at least not in hot afternoon sun. This is from the Chatham Islands in New Zealand and is hardy here in mild gardens and good against a wall. Below 25F you might think about tossing a sleeping bag over it. A great plant for all you folks sheltered gardens or who like to overwinter containers inside. `

Very rare groundcover species from Southland and Stewart Island, New Zealand where this is restricted to just 4 small coastal populations comprised of just 6 individual plants.  The plants form flattened brown-gray rosettes - and spread by stolons in moist dune hollows.  Our plants have green leaves which may refer to our soils or geography.

Gunnera prorepens Gunnera prorepens

A mat-forming, creeping bit of amusement from New Zealand where it grows from Auckland south.  This is related to the monster Gunnera of cast concrete leaf fame but is just a tad more manageable.  Great at pond's edge in the shaded woodland and small pipecleaners of reddish flowers are a pleasant surprise.

Kunzea ericoides Kunzea ericoides

A variable New Zealand species that used to be placed in Leptospermum and it is easy to see why with similar white flowers in summer and evergreen needle-like leaves.  This will get to be a large shrub or small tree and is well-suited to a windy exposed site.  Leaner soils with good drainage will promote hardiness and less lush growth but it will still grow fairly quickly.  Here in Deer Hell, this will be a useful deer-proof plant to add to the battle.

Libertia 'Amazing Grace' Libertia 'Amazing Grace'

Newer hybrid selection of this New Zealand Iris relative.  Evergreen (except for hard winters) olive green foliage provides a grand setting for the numerous stems of small bright white flowers.  This makes a clump pretty quickly and is great texture in the garden.  This is a performer.

Libertia 'Nelson Dwarf' Libertia 'Nelson Dwarf'

A superb compact and very floriferous plant we got from the sadly late Michael Wickenden at Cally Gardens in Scotland.  This is just about the perfect little container plant with low, dense tuffets of deep green narrow blades of leaves and a profusion of small white flowers on short stems which retain interest long after flowering with their seed heads.

Libertia cranwelliae Libertia cranwelliae

Very rare Libertia - which is a genus in the Iris family - from New Zealand which was thought to be extinct until a population of 30 individuals was discovered in 2006.  Closely allied to Libertia ixioides, this species is critically endangered in the wild but gardeners are helping with ex situ conservation through cultivation.  Evergreen olive-green leaves to 15"-18" on a clump forming plant with white flowers and persistent orange-ish seed pods.

Ozothamnus corrallioides Ozothamnus corrallioides

The cream of the the New Zealand woody Asters and a star in the rock garden.  This comes from the alpine areas of the mountains near Marlborough up to 1900 meters.  Flowers are a bit of yellow teminal nothings but the whipcord silvery branchlets are exquisite perfection.  Full sun and drier lean soil will suit this.  Took 3 nights of 0F at Hedgerows Nursery in 2009.

Parahebe catarractae 'Delight' Parahebe catarractae 'Delight'

Ok, this is delightful!  A small evergreen subshrub which has these shiny little leaves on mahogany stems with sprays of lavender-blue with a distinctive magenta ring enclosing a white eye.  This happily flowers from June until frost and shearing off the spent flowers encourages continued bloom. This makes a 10"x24" billow of foliage and flower in sun to part sun.

Phyllocladus alpinus Phyllocladus alpinus

Mountain Toatoa.  Middle-earth mind-bender of a conifer in the Podocarpaceae from the mountains of New Zealand.  At first glance and even after a period of unhurried contemplation, this defies easy categorization.  Small flattened phylloclades take up the photosynthetic reins from the vestigial leaves and the narrow pyramidal shrub has no comparatives in the garden.  Sl-o-o-o-w growing, these are small plants with a steady return on investment.

Raoulia albosericea Raoulia albosericea

Scabweed.  Don't you love common names?  Unless of course you are trying to sell them.  This alpine New Zealander is a very easy and very cool plant for a trough or rock garden.  We saw this beautifully grownin the rock garden at the Denver Botanic Gardens.  Hard flat white-silver mats with tiny cream dots of flowers in July.

Sophora microphylla Sophora microphylla

These are from seed from the good hardy form at the UW Arboretum.  This makes an impressive multistemmed shrub to 10 or 12 feet fine textured in foliage but what a knockout in bloom.  Loads of heavy textured hanging yellow flowers like Kirengeshoma followed by ornate knobbly long bean pods.

Evergreen sword leaves to 3' with stunning red bottlebrush flowers that are like nothing else. It is frost-sensitive and can take 15 years to flower but if potbound, you can shave some years off.The wait will be completely worth it.
