  • A big shrub with stubby spikes of purplish flowers. The genus is largely native to New Zealand. I was glad to learn this name because it's absolutely everywhere round where I live. Now all I have to do is try and visualize it in the same family (Plantaginaceae) as foxgloves, snapdragons, penstemon, and plantain.
