Hokonui Runanga Floraculture Ltd was established to develop varieties of Gentians (native flowers) sourced from the Campbell and Auckland Islands for commercial sale.

The Gentians found on these islands range in colour from white to pale pink, red and purple. Hokonui Runanga is currently cultivating purple Gentians (pictured) for the New Zealand cut flower market.

Gore provides an ideal climate to grow Gentians and we are in the process of exploring whether we expand our current range.
