Alpine Gardens

February is a wonderful time to stop at the top of Arthur's Pass to visit the extensive alpine gardens there.  I am not sure what the top flowers are but the lower picture is of a Celmisia.  These plants would both be native to New Zealand as the gardens are just a natural feature of the alpine environment.

  1. That bottom plant looks a lot like our yucca in the Western US. I wonder if it is a distant relative?
