Brachyglottis: Name comes from the Greek words brachus meaning "short" and glottis meaning "the vocal apparatus of the larynx"
Brachyglottis greyi (Hook.f.) B.Nord.
Vascular - Native
Senecio greyi Hook.f.
Endemic. Confined to the southern North Island from near Flat Point south to the mouth of the Orongorongo River.
Primarily a coastal species of rock outcrops and bluffs but may extend inland up river gorges and in suitably exposed bluff habitats
Main Flower Colour
Very easy from fresh seed or semi-hardwood cuttings. Layers readily as well. Will hybridise with most other Brachyglottis, so if pure seed is wanted plant specimens well away from other species in this genus
