Permanence:The original 16 hectare (41 acre) garden was first opened to the public in 1857. The adjacent Botanic Park (34 hectares) was acquired in 1857.
Description:New Zealand plants are located near the main gate, off North Terrace’s Botanic Road, in a small area near the palm collection and the Nelumbo pond. Most of the collection is composed of spaced, individual plants each with their own accession number and name plate staked in the ground. The trees and shrubs are well established, being up to 10m tall, and in good to excellent condition, with the exception of some showing symptoms of water stress. A collection of approximately 251 individual plants and 113 species is estimated.
