The native flora of New Zealand is rich and unique having evolved in isolation for millions of years, because of this it has a distinctive look about it. No fewer than 80% of New Zealand's native plants and trees are endemic i.e. occurring here and nowhere else. Although few have showy flowers the variety of foliage colour, texture, and shape is unsurpassed.
