A true NZ icon, this tall-growing native tree creates a natural canopy as the plant gets older. It has oval, green, glossy, leathery leaves and layered branches. This is one of the largest trees in the world so it needs lots of space and is good for open sections or larger gardens. It is also good as an accent against a tall building or as a stand-alone feature.
