Russia's Native Plants

Did you know one of Russia’s native plants is a flower that is called a Chamomile? The Camomile is a type of daisy and it’s sap can be used for bruises and sprains. 

 Firstly, The Rhododendrons has ten species of its kind. Most of the species of Rhododendrons are deciduous. Rhododendrons is one of the most popular plants in Russia. 

 Secondly, the Iris flower has a lot of species in its kind in total it has about sixty species. Irises are very popular in Russia. The Iris gets its name from the greek word rainbow. The iris plant is a popular garden flower. 

 Thirdly, The butterfly weed plant is grown from seed in home gardens. These brilliant flowers attract butterflies. Some people call it milkweed when none of the species have milky sap.

 In conclusion, Russia has a lot of weird names for flowers. They have lots of species and they are all very pretty.

A few weeks ago in Te Ngahere we were learning to write a report. I also learnt how to use proper nouns and common nouns, organise my learning into paragraphs and to use topic sentences. We had to write more than 2 reports.


  1. Hola Alexis
    Hi I'm Holly from Grey Main School in Greymouth and I am a Year 8 student. I really like your blog post because it explains about Russians Native Plants. I think you could maybe add a little bit more about the plants because theirs not much. What is your favourite plant from Russia?
    Come and check out my blog!

  2. Kia Ora Alexis. I am Arly, a year 7 student from Karoro school. Thank you for the comment on my blog. I really like your report on Russian plants. Something you could change would be your sentence structure.
    You could also add more plants to the report. Other than that I really liked your report.

  3. Hi Alexis.
    Its me, Freya. I really like your Russian Plants report. It is very informative. I didn’t know that those plants even existed. Apart from the Iris. We have Irises in our garden.
