  3. 3. <ul><li>Moss </li></ul><ul><li>- soft, cushioney, that grows on rocks </li></ul><ul><li>Average height of the plant – 3-5cm high </li></ul><ul><li>Needs very little soil to grow </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Lichens </li></ul><ul><li>Feels dusty </li></ul><ul><li>All kinds of colours </li></ul><ul><li>Grow on rocks </li></ul><ul><li>VERY small plants – on average 1cm tall and grow in clumps and spread out </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Hebe </li></ul><ul><li>on average 1m tall – there are many small varieties as well </li></ul><ul><li>VERY hardy plant (can withstand all kinds of whether – especially wind and dry and wet climates) </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Alpine Herbs </li></ul><ul><li>Very small variety of plants, different shapes and sizes </li></ul><ul><li>Need a little bit of dirt to grow (more than moss) </li></ul><ul><li>Average height of 10-20cm </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Tussock </li></ul><ul><li>Tall grass </li></ul><ul><li>Av. height of 60cm, can grow up to 1m </li></ul><ul><li>VERY VERY hardy plant – can grow in very dry and windy conditions </li></ul><ul><li>Does NOT need “perfect” soil conditions, can grow in very infertile soil </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>“ Scrubland” – areas of land with mediums sized vegetation </li></ul><ul><li>Many different varieties of medium sized shrubs and small trees eg Manuka and Kanuka trees </li></ul>
