The Native Flowers of New Zealand, first appeared in three parts in 1887 and 1888. It was published by Sampson Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington of London. The chromolithographs were by Leighton Brothers.

Georgina Hetley was first inspired to paint plants "growing in their native state" after hearing a talk in Auckland by Thomas Cheeseman about a collecting trip he had made. By 1884 Hetley had made a start, and Cheeseman helped to identify the plants she had painted. Thomas Kirk also gave assistance.

The Government gave aid in the form of free travel passes on the railways, and the Union Steamship Company issued her with passes for their steamers. Sir Robert Stout, Premier and Minister of Education, promised to purchase copies of the book for public schools and libraries.
