Two Waikato Botannical Society trips

Saturday 9th MarchDactylanthus trip - Pureora

A trip to visit a population of the rare root parasite Dactylanthus taylorii in Pureora Forest Park. We are timing this trip to be able to collect pollen from flowering Dactylanthus in Pureora, the pollen will then be transferred to female flowers in the threatened plant garden back in Hamilton. This will hopefully increase the chances of seed set for the threatened plant garden Dactylanthus, which last year produced only female flowers.

Please note the date for this trip is dependent on flowering time and may be subject to change, the trip will be confirmed by email notice closer to the time.

Please contact Liz or Thomas below for queries or to register your interest.
