Metrosideros Spring Fire
Pacific Rata. This tree from the Pacific Islands is similar to NZ’s pohutukawa which is well known around coastal New Zealand. Over time it forms a broad, spreading tree. The large, rounded leaves are light grey-green with a distinct undulation around the edge. Showy clusters of orange-red flowers appear sporadically throughout the year. Grows approximately 5m high x 2m wide.
It grows best by the coast in areas that only get very little frost. Very hardy to dry conditions once established. Tolerates most soil types.
