Celmisia is a mostly New Zealand genus of Asteraceae, with about 70 species. Many of them are alpine, and each is beautiful in its own way. Some are truly spectacular, but others are more subtle. The late David Given devoted a lifetime of research to them, but even so, many taxonomic questions remain.
