Voters' comments for Pittosporum pimeleoides subsp. majus

  1. Matt Ward (25 Nov 2019)

    I am torn but Rossell would turn if he knew I hadn't backed his namesake. I have met my great granddads plant only in my aunties garden but none the less it is a toanga too our whanau. Thanks Graham for starting off the votes on this rare, endangered and awesome species.

    This plant was first named after my Grandfather Ross Michie, Pitisporum Micheii. I was saddened to hear it has changed

  3. Julie Sandbrook (16 Nov 2019)

    It's a family plant! Named (originally) after my step Mum's grandad!!

  4. don Sandbrook (15 Nov 2019)

    Orgasmic plant

  5. Liz Grant (15 Nov 2019)

    This plant is particularly special for me because its original scientific name was Pittosporum michiei and was named after my grand father Ross Michie who lived in Kaitaia. He was a keen naturalist with an eye for the unusual and used to fossick around North Cape.

    I like the octopus looking flowers!!

  7. Susan Trask (7 Nov 2019)

    The flowers are sooo pretty I would love to see it, and aromatic too a real winner. First time voter.

  8. Michael Dooley (5 Nov 2019)

    Graeme makes a convincing argument. I would love to see/smell it in the wild...

  9. Jeff McCleod (4 Nov 2019)

    An interesting wee plant which is often overlooked, but often smelt before seen.

  10. Paula Spoin (31 Oct 2019)

    It's so delicate and delicious...

    P. pimelioides subsp. majus is crushingly range restricted. North Cape, Surville cliffs at the tippy top of NZ where Bartlett's Rata hangs on. I have an abiding affection for fragrant natives. I think they're under appreciated. Silly old Mahoe, Pittosporum tenuifolum reek in spring as do our Olearias. Pittosporum pimelioides is the champ for me though. I can smell it from a surprisingly long way
