Mikoikoi - NZ native iris 2

While these are green, as it was growing in shade, in the sun the leaves turn a golden orange.

Toetoe - Cortaderia

High on the list of New Zealand native plants which are taken for granted are the Toetoes (Cortaderias), the New Zealand pampas grasses. They are often banished to country fence lines, well away from a fussy gardener's critical eyes.
