The early settlers in New Zealand made some dreadful mistakes. The bought in rabbits, weasels, stoats, ferrets, opossums, gorse, broom for what seemed like good reasons, but they turned into pests which have seriously damaged the native flora and fauna.

One thing they did right was bringing in azaleas and rhododendrons. They have really thrived in the New Zealand climate and added beautiful colours to our gardens.

These two small ones are in our garden.
