Internet Purchases
Plant purchases direct from this website are thriving. It is convenient, saves travelling to ONPN, and can be done 24/7. Here is the response of a recent client:

"Thank you very much. My cordylines arrived today :) I am very impressed with your prompt service and the quality of my new babies.

I will definitely order plants from you in the future.

Thanks again, Courtney"
Chionochloa rubra subsp occulata
Height: 1.3m;  Spread: 1.5m
Grass
This is similar to C. rubra apart from the flowers. However it does grow very well in warmer climates and does do well in the wet. Wispy light brown leaves forming dense clumps with delicate flower heads amongst the top of the foliage.
