The Mount Cook Lily or Kōpukapuka is in fact not a lily at all. It belongs to the buttercup family. The Mount Cook Lily is one of New Zealand’s most well known alpine plants.
It grows in sub-alpine to alpine herbfields in the South Island mountains from 700m to 1500m in altitude. It is well adapted to grow in infertile soils and it favours stream banks and damp locations in scrub and grasslands.
