Plants suitable for Mackenzie Country

Landscaping in harsh environments can be challenging.  As Southlanders we get that!   There are plenty of tough natives that will thrive in these situations though.  So we have put together a list of plants that are known to do well in and around the Mackenzie Basin.   These plants are recommended for planting in Mackenzie Basin including Omarama, Twizel, Tekapo, Kurow and similar surrounding areas.

Of course there will always be micro climates and frost pockets etc, so there will never be a broad brush solution.  However this is a list of reasonably safe plants that we know have done well in Te Anau.

This list shows items that are in stock now, it will change as our stock changes.

All our stock grown in Tuatapere, Southland - guaranteed tough!
