Grey scrub, Central Otago

Grey scrub, Central Otago

A stand of grey scrub survives in a rocky gully in Central Otago, where it has been partly sheltered from fires and grazing animals. Grey scrub is so named because of its dark appearance. It consists of a variety of small-leaved, highly branched shrubs such as matagouri, mingimingi (Coprosma propinqua) and olearias, as well as wiry climbing plants that scramble over and through the shrubs.
