Voting for New Zealand’s favourite plant takes place annually via an on-line voting system on the home page of this website. The purpose of the vote is to find out why New Zealanders love their native plants and help raise a greater awareness and appreciation of native plants.
The vote is based on a similar project carried out in the United Kingdom by the Conservation Organisation Plant Life UK. The data collected have been used by the DOC in developing its national conservation programme and provide insights into which species are loved the most and why.
The results from previous years can be seen below.
