The New Zealand Christmas Tree

NZ Christmas Tree

The Pohutukawa tree is possibly one of the best known and most loved New Zealand native trees.

Pohutukawa flowersPohutukawa flowers are bright red, smothering the tree in December (right: Pohutukawa in bloom), hence its common name: the New Zealand Christmas Tree.

Why not try something different next Christmas…instead of bringing out the plastic tree, or buying a sad-looking pine, why not plant your very own New Zealand Christmas Tree, which will last for many a Christmas to come!

 

BEST WISHES FOR YOU AND YOURS IN 2014!
