I'd like to ID my shrubs. Out of interest, re care, and re helpful pruning/trimming info, and any other helpful info. I need to bring these things under control, but properly

 

I can and will Google, and scour images. There are many apps to help, although they seem to be US, or UK, etc. I dont know where any non NZ native plants I have come from

 

Any hints, recommended NZ websites, or any apps that may be international or comprehensive?

 

TIA

Cheers, but there are a few, maybe 16 as I have a quick count out of my windows!  I'll check native websites tonight and maybe flick you an email with some pics?

I suggest NatureWatch. It is the best place in New Zealand to get identifications from experts, and you contribute to citizen science.

Whip around and take a small clipping and photo of each and head down to your local garden centre. The internet is not always the best source of info. There are so many variants these days a bit of local knowledge will go a long way.
