Pond Plants

There’s a beautiful pond garden at Dunedin Botanic Gardens, quite large and with a good variety of plants. It’s been looking lovely of late. New Zealand.

Click on any photo to enlarge.


Pink candelabra primulas, 25 Oct 2020. Taken by me, this is a large showy group near the top of the gardens and nowhere near the pond – however there are also some growing by the pond. Today in Invercargill we saw the same type actually *in* the edge of a water channel – evidently very tolerant of ‘wet feet’!

Remaining photos all taken by Nigel.
