New Zealand Christmas Tree. Pohutukawa. Metrosideros excelsa

Meterosideros excelsa. Pohutukawa, sometimes spelt pohutakawa, is one of New Zealand's most visually recognisable plants when in flower. Standing sometimes up to 20m the coastal loving plant is seen as the county's native Christmas Tree. Flowering through our hot summer festive months, long lasting blooms continue to add visual delight to our coastal and residential landscapes.EMAIL NZLANDSCAPES
