In the Napier suburb of Meanee there flourishes a most spectacular Pampas Grass. I'm not sure whether it is an introduced one or the native Toetoe. Cortaderia jubata begins flowering in late January and Cortaderia selloana begins flowering in early March. Toetoe flowers from October to January. Given that it is April I suspect that it is selloana. Whichever it sure is impressive.
