We saw an occasional native Carmichaelia when we drove up the side road at Roxburgh on 21 November 2020. Nigel got out of the car and photographed this one, and bonus … it’s in flower! He thinks it’s Cromwell Broom or Carmichaelia compacta. [I posted a landscape view from the same road recently – Knobby Range Road.]

That’s the Clutha River in the background.
To learn more about New Zealand native brooms: O2 Landscapes has done an excellent overview article.
