Close up of white hebe flower

Veronica stricta syn. Hebe stricta


New Zealand's hebe and speedwells

2pm, Sunday January 25

Did you know that Hebe has recently been renamed Veronica? Professor Phil Garnock-Jones will give a short talk and then lead an easy 90 minute walk around the gardens to look at Otari’s many examples.
Meet at the Information Centre.
Cost: $3

The Southern (von Meuller) waterfall

2pm, Sunday February 22

See a part of Otari that few know about and even fewer have seen. This two-hour walk and clamber, in parts off-track, to the hidden waterfall above the southern picnic area, is reasonably strenuous. Feet might get wet, so good boots are recommended.
Meet at the Information Centre.
Cost: $3
