Bright Colours, Autumn

Autumn pics from 25 March 2022. Photos 2-4 are native New Zealand plants.

The first two photos are from Dunedin Botanic Garden. The last two are ‘wild’ plants growing above the beach at Ocean View, Dunedin. A great day out!

    1. In our native plants I’d say we have a fair amount of red and purple and very little pink! (If I was to count in all the exotics that we see then that statement wouldn’t apply as there’s much more pink in exotic plants than in our native plants).
