Following up on Marion’s post about secret gardens in the city, and given that Tī Kōuka is a ‘symbol for our city’, I want to know where your favourite cabbage tree is in the Canterbury.
My personal favourite is in my neighbour’s yard (not far to go!). So where’s yours? On the banks of Avon River? Tucked up in Heathcote Valley?
Find out about the history and importance of Tī Kōuka here.
Check out some other heritage photos of cabbage trees, in Lyttelton, on the River Avon, near the Worcester Street Bridge. Wonder if any of them are still there today …
