Mt Cook lily

Mt Cook lily

One New Zealand’s flowering gems is the Mt Cook lily (Ranunculus lyallii), growing here in the rock garden at Larnach Castle, near Dunedin. This alpine plant is actually a buttercup but, unlike most buttercups it produces flowers with pure white petals. It is best grown in a cool climate, in a spot with excellent drainage.
