Island with top knot, or Broccoli Island? framed print

A number of these small outcrops have been cut off by the ocean, from the soft volcanic rock, around the coastline of Mercury Bay, Coromandel, New Zealad, leaving the island behind, often with a top tuft of plants. In this case Pōhutukawa (Metrosideros excelsa) a coastal evergreen tree in the myrtle family, Myrtaceae, that produces a brilliant display of red flowers made up of a mass of stamens. The Pōhutukawa is one of twelve Metrosideros species endemic to New Zealand. Known as the ‘Christmas Tree’ as that is the time of flowering. Nikon D300, 70-300.
