Pohutukawa Tree - Gift Box

Commonly known as NZ’s Christmas Tree because of it’s spectacular bright scarlet blooms which flower from early summer.

While it is naturally found in the northern part of the North Island, it can grow in coastal areas of the South Island including as far south as Dunedin. Frost tender while young. Metrosideros excelsa grows to approximately 15m but can be contained in a pot. Generally Trees Please! will use Metrosideros excelsa ‘Vibrance’ or alternative varieties which grow to approximately 4m. However Metrosideros excelsa may be substituted from time to time.

Pohutukawa nectar is favoured by apiarists as well as bellbirds and tui and some species of native gecko. Pohutukawa wood is very strong so was used in boat building.

Delivered in a Trees Please! pine gift box as shown.

More about this item by Trees Please

Because our trees come in their own planter, there is no rush for the recipient to plant them out immediately. Trees will last in their planters for several weeks - months, providing they are watered and well looked after. Trees Please! trees are potted into top quality potting mix, with SaturAid rewetting granuels for economical water management, water storing granuels, slow release fertiliser, root promoting nutrients and root disease suppressing agents. The planters are covered with brown paper, to reduce the chance of spillage in transit.

All trees come in their purpose designed outer pine gift box which has an opening for air and light, plus leather carry handle, making it ideal for easy delivery throughout New Zealand.

Because we care for our environment, components are recyclable, or come from sustainable or recycled sources. Outer boxes can be reused as a planter box, storage box or to send other gifts in.
