Coastal NZ Native Planting Design

These clients live at Ocean Grove, Dunedin therefore we needed a planting scheme tolerant of coastal winds. This long thin border beside the property's driveway was completely devoid of any interesting planting. We decided NZ native plants and cultivars would cope best with site conditions.


NZ native shrubs included in this design:

The shrubby plants gives bulk to the planting design and varied interest from flower and foliage throughout the year.

Astelia chathamatica 'Silver Spear' (bush lily)

Astelia fragrans (bush lily)

Olearia ilicifolia × moschata
Carmichaelia odorata (scented broom)
Clianthus puniceus 'Alba' (white kakabeak)
Hebe pinguifolia 'Sutherlandii'
Coprosma acerosa
Corokia x virgata 'Bronze King'
Griselinia littoralis 'Dixons Cream' (broadleaf)
Hebe x franciscana 'Blue Gem'
Hebe 'Oratia Beauty'
Melicytus chathamicus (Chatham Island Mahoe)
Muehlenbeckia astonii (pohuehue)
Mysine diviricata (weeping matipo)
Pachystegia insignis (Marlborough rock daisy)
Pittosporum 'Waimea'
Podocarpus nivalis (snow totara)
Pseudopanax laetus (five-finger)
Pseudopanax lessonii 'Bronze' (five-finger)
Pseudowintera colorata (pepper tree)
Schefflera digitata (pate)
Sophora prostrata (prostrate kowhai)





NZ native trees included in this design:

Trees were needed to screen views from neighbour's houses - all of these native trees should have a mature height of under 5m and tolerate coastal conditions.

NZ native ground cover plants included in this design:

At the front of the planting scheme, beneath trees, and as fillers until the rest of the planting bulks out.
