Thanks for that, will add some pics of mine, it is nothing like!!
Is that red Leopard to the right, have just bough another Pseudowintera, because the other one has survived the last few years without any protection.....

Yes it is. Seems to be hardy here - the only way to kill it is by letting it get dry at the root.

I remembered you telling me that, so I have watered it whenever we have a long spell of dry weather.....

Have looked up Astelia, and it is either banksii nervosa or Sloandri......hard to tell!

I would say solandri as the other is more silvery. It appears to often grow as an epiphyte in its native New Zealand - see jury.co.nz/2013/05/17/plant-collector-astelia-solandri/
