Rangiora, Brachyglottis repanda
As part of our targeted planting policy to reintroduce plants that would have originally been in Hamilton gullies we have grown a good quantity of Rangiora, Brachyglottis repanda from seed collected from Te Pahu and Maungatautari . While the Rangiora are relatively common in bush areas they are quite hard to grow from seed. We have planted a good number in our gully and we have been giving them to people that are planting other parts of the gully to spread the future seed source of this plant species in town.
