Garden-grown specimens are that bit better furnished of course.

It's very nice indeed Rob and one can imagine that a well grown garden specimen could be very spectacular. Might have to sprinkle a little salt?

A few NZ natives in the garden here .

Bulbinella rossii - although getting bigger each year ,(has 3 stems this season ),no where the size they reach when really happy in their natural environment of New Zealands sub-antarctic islands.

One of the grassland Celmisia sps --i presume it is a form of C.gracilenta --interestingly i remember  :-\   it in previous years as having brown mottled leaves ,if that is correct why does it have plain green this season. ::)

Finally Celmisia bellidioides --hasn't flowered for a number of years so obviously has enjoyed the wet cool conditions of late.

Cheers dave.

These are nice Dave, especially the Bulbinella rossii. I'd love to grow that but would be too hot and dry for it here. There are some advantages after all, to a bottom-of-the-South-Island climate and garden. ;D

Of course Lesley it has its benefits . 8)

Such as being able to move these near flowering Arisaemas to a new area earlier today  :o    ---They were starting to become a weed in one of the Trillium beds.
They should do okay being moved so late ,as last year i transplanted a number of different A. sps in mid summer and they are flowering currently.

Cheers dave.

I'd probably risk it Dave. In fact, I'll have to as I want all the ciliatums together and all the consanguineums and at present they're mixed. So I'll lift them and replant separately elsewhere, as they begin to flower. I've put coloured wool round a couple that are out but I dont want to wait longer. If they're moved early in the flowering, they can still set seed whereas they don't if the flower is well on. For me anyway. All they need is a good watering on moving.
