A NZ icon in the landscape, this large growing native canopy tree has glossy ribbed leaves and an upright form with a large spreading crown. The bark is thin, flaky and light brown in colour. Bright red berries provide an excellent source of food for birdlife, especially the native Wood Pigeon. This is a good street tree or specimen for the larger garden or landscape and it can add a lush back drop or screening to a native garden situation. Its spreading growth habit provides shelter from the sun when it matures.
