This afternoon I got this photo of a Ozothamnus vauvilliersii plant growing beside the Waituna Wetland near Bluff.
This plant is also known as Mountain Tauhinu or Mountain Cottonwood. It grows quite low down in the far south and likes dry sites. It will be a great native species to propagate and plant out on the north facing slopes of Mt Chocolate.
There is more information available about this native plant.
