DSC05333The foreground plant is Pseudowintera "Burgundy Delight". This is a striking pepper tree selection from the Takaka Hill. It has outstanding red foliage which changes with the season.

The mid field plant is Blechnum minus. This is a hardy fern which will grow in shade or sun.

The plant on the right is Dracophyllum longifolium. It has narrow leaves and nice vertical form. Slow growing and rare in cultivation, this plant brings a touch of the New Zealand mountains into the garden.
