METROSIDEROS EXCELSA LIGHTHOUSE - Lighthouse Pohutukawa

METROSIDEROS EXCELSA LIGHTHOUSE - Lighthouse Pohutukawa
larger imageMove mouse over the image to magnify
A selection of Metrosideros excelsa from Rangitoto Island in Auckland, Lighthouse has a more upright and tighter form than normal Pohutakawa. It has the same dark, rich, green, oval-shaped leaves, crimson red flowers and rough dark brown bark. Red aerial roots may develop on the lower portion of the trunk over time. With all the typical features of a normal Pohutakawa tree, Lighthouse is better suited to where a smaller growing is required. Hardy to coastal conditions.
