Alberto is correct - there are very few native geophytes in New Zealand. Iphigenia novae-zelandiae (Hook.f.) Baker in the Family Colchiaceae is, I believe, very rare! However there are "naturalised" bulbs which have escaped into the wild to the dismay of the country's Bio-security department. The native flora of New Zealand, even without native bulbs, is diverse and very beautiful - see the many "Southern Hemisphere" threads in the Scottish Rock Garden Club Forum - you will see wonderful photos of the plants and scenery of that magical country . http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?board=3.0 for many of these threads and also in the Travel' places to visit area : http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=11026.0 such as this latest thread : http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=11026.0 You might also enjoy the extensive Bulb Sections in the Forum, too! I wish you a very happy trip to New Zealand - I am sure you will love the country - and its plants - my husband has had the good fortune to visit and maybe one day I will too! Maggi Y.
