Good Company

From the native area at Dunedin Botanic Garden, two plants that each seem to perfectly complement the other. How well the yellow daisy flowers of Brachyglottis lagopus look with Astelia nervosa! Dunedin, New Zealand. Photos taken 09 Dec 2020.

Brachyglottis lagopus used to be named Senecio lagopus.
Common names: yellow rock daisy, mountain daisy.

    1. I imagine you’d have some kinds of our astelia over there. Astelia ‘Silver Spear’ for instance is immensely popular, and I wouldn’t be surprised if ‘Alpine Ruby’ is also available overseas.

      1. I’ve seen ‘Silver Spear’ – lovely, but tends to be expensive here – but I haven’t seen ‘Alpine Ruby’ yet. (Must look out for it.) Maybe I’ll treat myself/the garden some day – if it’s hardy enough!

          1. Sounds like something for the shopping list! Being able to go to a garden centre or nursery next year will be a real treat! 🙂
