2014 Favourite Plant Vote results

The 2014 Favourite Plant and Worst Weed election has come to an end. Voting for your favourite New Zealand plant and worst weed was run through November. The 12th annual competition for favourite plant was contested fiercely in the early stages between an orchid, a colorful legume, a rare rata, and a commonly known southern tree. Toward the end of the vote the favourite was clear, deservedly earning 30% of the vote.

1. Bartlett’s rata (Metrosideros bartlettii)

2. Kauri greenhood (Pterostylis brumalis)

3. Dobson’s speargrass (Aciphylla dobsonii)

4. Kakabeak (Clianthus puniceus)

5. Kamahi (Weinmannia racemosa)

6. Copper beard orchid (Calochilus herbaceus)

7. New Zealand gloxinia (Rhabdothamnus solandri)
