New Zealand Alpines and Rock Garden Plants


NEW CATALOGUE ENTRIES are indicated by
We apologise for the delay in adding new varieties to this page. At present most varieties are in short supply but we have propagated a wide selection of species and these will be added as soon as they are ready.
All stock has been nursery propagated and cultivated.


ACIPHYLLA simplex $9.00
Three-year old small single rosettes of this very slow growing species raised from seed. Clinging to shady rocky bluffs and cliffs, it eventually forms tight cushions of coppery gold sharply pointed leaves with male or female flowers on short stubby stems. Well-lit but cool aspect, free-draining soil.

ANISTOME latifolia $9.00
This is from the Subantarctic Islands and features bold mounds of divided foliage and majestic stems carrying umbels in white to pale lilac mauve. A cool position with moist gritty soil with loads of extra humus/compost. Can reach 2m in flower.

CARMICHAELIA enysii hybrid $8.00
This distinctive little plant appeared amongst seedlings from our stock plants. Low-growing, open branching golden olive green stems and lots of wee plum purple pea flowers. Easy.

CELMISIA bellidioides $8.00
A dark green glossy cushion or mat. Many short-stemmed white daisies in summer. Flowers well here with morning sun and moist gritty soil. H7cm x W40cm.

CELMISIA semicordata $8.00
Mature plants make striking clumps with their long silvery strap-shaped leaves with a gold flush on the upper surfaces and, in early summer, strong stems carry large solitary white Daisies. These are from wild seed collected as C.semicordata aurigens so expect some variation in the degree of gold on the leaves. Sun and low companion planting to keep the root zone cool.

• HEBE buchananii Sir George Fenwick $8.00
A broad dome of tiny olive green leaves with a sprinkling of cream flowers in summer. Very compact. Sun. H25cm x W60cm.

• HEBE cupressoides nana $8.00
An attractive broad mound of pale creamy green juvenile new growth over mid green foliage looking for all the world like a nicely clipped little conifer. White flowers. Very aromatic. Sun. Larger rock gardens, borders, banks.

HEBE haastii macrocalyx $8.00
An attractive high alpine species from Canterbury. Prostrate stems of round bright green leaves and large clusters of pure white flowers in summer. Sun. Cool fertile well-drained soil with ample moisture in midsummer. H15cm x W40cm.

HEBE 'pimelioides glaucocaerulea' $8.00
This dwarf species has small greyish blue leaves, flushed pink in colder weather, and lavender blue flowers in summer. Sun.

HECTORELLA caespitosa $8.00
This forms a low tight dome/mound with each tightly packed rosette ringed with stemless cream flowers in summer. A fine wee plant for a sunny well-drained position, adequate moisture in summer. Ideal for a trough garden.

HELICHRYSUM bellidioides $8.00
A prostrate mat with silvery reverse to the green foliage. Good-sized white daisies with green eyes. Sun. Well-drained moderately fertile soils, not arid in summer. H7cm x W50cm.

HELICHRYSUM intermedium tumidum $8.00
A spreading shrublet of upright stems densely packed with tiny leaves with furry margins. Flowers wee cream buttons.

HELICHRYSUM County Park Silver $8.00
This is an attractive selection for the sunny rock garden or large trough. Medusa-like threads of silvery white in a compactly woven mat look crisp and fresh throughout the year. Well-drained soil.

HERPOLIRION novae zelandiae $8.00
This tiny member of the Lily family inhabits wet peaty herbfields and can be found locally in sphagnum bogs. Short fans of glaucous foliage and almost stemless pale blue stars in spring. Sun/part sun. Prefers cool soil but tolerates intermittently drier conditions. H5cm x W20cm.

LEUCOGENES leontopodium $9.00
The North Island Edelweiss. Compact mounds of satiny silvery grey leaves and chubby white furry flowerheads on short stems. Sun. Plant between two sunken rocks in gritty humus-rich soil. H7cm x W30cm.

LUZULA crenulata $8.00
This crispy green grassy bun is quite a feature in one of our troughs and gets lots of attention. Tinted copper in winter. Sun. Moist gritty soil. H5cm x W25cm.

MAZUS radicans $8.00
Carpets of mottled green leaves with stemless white flowers, marked gold and purple in the throat. Moist gritty fertile soil.

• MYOSOTIS Purple Mat $8.00
This is a self-sown seedling from our Myosotis Hokonui and forms a neat mat of dull green foliage and the deep purple budfs open to more or less stemless pinky purple flowers over a prolonged period. A worthwhile addition to your collection! Sun. Free-draining soils but not dry. fs

NERTERA depressa $8.00
This lush little bright green mat has tiny nondescript flowers which are followed by abundant glossy orange fruits clustered amongst the foliage. Part shade but will take some sun if not dry. Moist soil.

PENTACHONDRA pumila $9.00
This attractive plant forms tight dark green cushions of little needles. The wee white flowers amongst the branch tips develop into fat succulent berries of reddish plum. These are the first plants I have ever managed to germinate from seed and each pot contains one clone. Apparently two clones are required to produced berries so now we can propagate accordingly.

RANUNCULUS enysii $8.00
Creeping carpets of bright green glossy foliage and short-stemmed shiny bright yellow Buttercups. A worthwhile addition to the native garden. Sun and free-draining soil.

RAOULIA hectori $8.00
Tight cushions of crispy creamy tiny rosettes.

• RAOULIA hectori 'mollis' $8.00
As for the type but finer in the rosettes.

RAOULIA hookeri Makara Form $8.00
This is an excellent variety for an open sunny position. Silvery satin rosettes in a neat spreading carpet sprinkled in summer with little pale yellow stemless flowers.

RAOULIA monroi $8.00
This is a most unusual little carpet - the dull grey tiny leaves are uniquely arranged and well worth a closer inspection. Plenty of wee cream flowers in early summer. Sun. H3cm x W40cm.
