SOPHORA TETRAPTERA - Large-leaved kowhai
larger imageMove mouse over the image to magnify
Sophora tetraptera is commonly known as the kowhai or large-leaved kowhai that grows naturally only in the central east of the North Island. It has larger, more widely spaced leaves than other species. It is a great specimen to provide some contrast in a strictly native garden with its early abundance of yellow flowers in early spring which are a favourite food of the Tui and other bird life.
