Serendipitous supply
When the Monarch Butterfly NZ Trust wanted to give a gift of plants, locally sourced from Rarangi Beach, east of Blenheim, they came to Oratia. Not only could we provide an eco-sourced species, it was also a plant which had since disappeared from the region!

This is the Trust's story.

Growing tips:
On 16/12/2014, Martin Nicholls said:
While not growing in encouraging spurts like taraire, it is a steady grower and puts on a surprising amount of vertical growth over the growing season. Requires constantly moist soils, but not necessarily swampy sites. Not frost-hardy.
