Forest Vines to Snow Tussocks: The Story of New Zealand Plants



Species of this genus may be abundant on moist, shady slopes in tussock herbfield, their heads of starry yellow flowers often providing something unusual in New Zealand mountain landscapes — a mass of solid colour. Their leaves are tufted and long and narrow. Bulbinella hookeri ranges from the North Island mountains to north Canterbury; B. angustifolia, sometimes inappropriately known as 'Maori onion', ranges through the drier eastern mountains of the South Island from North Canterbury southwards; and B. gibbsii in the wetter mountains of the southern North Island, southern South Island and Stewart Island.
