In a world where bees are globally challenged for survival, we can do our part to ensure they have sufficient food for honey production, and in turn pollinate our vital commercial crops and our fruit producing orchards. Native blossoms are wonderful bee attractants and many New Zealand native trees, climbers, and shrubs have simply stunning and often fragrant flowers.
Similarly, many of our native trees produce wonderful fruit, seeds, and small berries which provide essential food for our native birds as they establish their flight paths. Choose from a broad range of beautiful fruit, seed, berry, and exquisite flowering natives to keep the birds and the bees in natural food, and your gardens and projects bright with enchanting colour.
Below are a range of native species from which to choose:
Fruits, Seeds and Berries
Coprosma spp (Coprosma robusta)
Clematis spp (Paniculata puawhananga)
Corokia spp (Corokia virgata)
Houhere spp (Hoheria populnea)
Manuka spp (Leptospermum scoparium)
