Guide to Native Plant Index

Posted by SCe Comments Off on Guide to Native Plant Index

This guide to the plants of Piha and environs is organised alphabetically according to the Maori name. If the Maori name is not know, the botanical name is used.

Overall, the Index is specific to the Piha area and all the photographs were taken by Sandra Coney in the Piha area.

There are over 500 native plants in the Piha area so I have a way to go! The Index is being continually updated.

Particular books have been used in writing the text and these are acknowledged here. They are:
