Flowering Shrubs In NZ

New Zealand's vibrant landscape offers the perfect stage for showcasing a diverse array of flowering shrubs. From the snow-covered Southern Alps to the semi-tropical environment of Northland, there's a shrub to suit every climate and garden style. Whether you crave colour, fragrance, year-round interest, or all of these, here's a glimpse into some of the flowering shrubs available in NZ through the different seasons.

Spring flowering shrubs:

Greet the warmer months with a chorus of colour from some of our more popular shrubs. Ceanothus paints the landscape with vibrant blues and purples, while Rhododendrons and Camellias offer a majestic display of pinks, reds, and whites. Don't forget the ever-popular Weigela, with its cascading branches laden with bell-shaped blossoms. Finally, Escallonias and Mexican Orange Blossoms complete the picture.

Summer flowering shrubs:

As the sun intensifies, heat-loving shrubs take centre stage. Butterfly Bushes attract butterflies with their fragrant, nectar-rich flowers, while Hibiscus add a tropical touch with their large and vibrant blooms. For a touch of the Mediterranean, Lavender offers captivating purple hues and a calming fragrance, and can be complemented with Grevilleas and Leucadendrons. The picture is completed with beautiful and fragrant Gardenias.

Autumn Flowering Shrubs:

Embrace the farewell of summer with shrubs that put on a final dazzling display. Smokebush erupts in a cloud of burgundy foliage, while Hydrangeas transform into globes of vibrant blues, pinks, and purples. Camellias will often put on another remarkable show.

Winter Flowering Shrubs:

Even during the cooler months, your garden can bloom with resilience. Viburnums offer clusters of berries that provide a feast for birds and visual interest. For a touch of drama, Hamamelis delights with its fragrant, witch-like flowers that defy the winter chill.
