A couple of plants growing beside the stream at the Rangatuhi Crescent entrance to the Porirua Scenic reserve. First noted back on 14th Dec 2105 but it was not in flower. A very tall plant (around 2m) that does not seem to fit the overall description for C. intybus

Description

This is a rare plant in the wild in this area. On my bike ride this morning from Cashmere to Lincoln via Halswell and Old Tai Tapu Road, I only saw this plant along Old Tai Tapu Road and a scattering of plants in one field along Perymans Road.
