Other places:
Some New Zealand plants are very common about Northern Ireland e.g. New Zealand privet, Griselinia littoralis, is a very common hedging shrub in both towns and country areas.
Cabbage-palms, Cordyline australis, are very frequent in gardens especially around the coast.
A few species have become naturalised and occur as 'weeds' in the wild, such as pirri-pirri burr, Acaena ovalifolia, and related species and the New Zealand willowherb, Epilobium brunnescens.
