Streamsides provide important habitat for a large number of our native plants and animals. Drainage, culverting and other actions including planting non-native species such as willow and poplar have led to the local extinction or reduction of many native plant species that used to occur naturally beside streams. You can help reduce further loss of indigenous biodiversity by planting native plants appropriate to the conditions and to the region.
This factsheet provides information on native plants for streamside plantings in the Wellington region. It includes information on the advantages of using native plants for streamside planting and a list of suitable plants and how and where to plant them for best results.
