METROSIDEROS EXCELSA - Pohutukawa
larger imageMove mouse over the image to magnify
Nothing says NZ Christmas like a Pohutukawa in full flower! This is a medium or large sized spreading tree with either a central leader or multi branching. Oval leaves are a dark rich green with brilliant crimson red flowers and a rough dark brown bark. Red aerial roots can develop on the lower portion of the trunk over time. An essential part of the New Zealand summer, the Pohutukawa makes a great shade tree or a fantastic tree for the kids to climb. It is a good coastal tree that will tolerate most conditions.
