Green Wall (Part 2)

This post continues Green Wall in Rural Town Centre. Balclutha, Otago, New Zealand.

My previous post showed the public square with the green wall in a general context. These photos are close-ups of the actual plants. Most of the plants are native to New Zealand but one or two aren’t. Where I’m fairly sure of the genus I’ll mention it in the caption. No caption means I don’t know!
