Natives recommended for Central Otago conditions
Landscaping in harsh environments can be challenging. As South Islanders we get that! There are plenty of tough natives that will thrive in these situations. We have put together a list of plants that are known to do well in and around the Central Otago area, including Queenstown, Wanaka, Cromwell, Alexandra 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 Central Otago.
The list includes tried and true trees, shrubs, groundcover, grasses & tussocks suitable for the conditions.
