  • Thank you Mike – we look forward to them flowering every November – if they flower early it’s a sign that we are in for a good, long summer – as Maori legend goes.

    Lovely capture Roy, they are so beautiful when they are in flower.

  • Many thanks Andrea – out of curiosity, do you get pohutukawa’s as far down south as Gore ? Put your answer on your next reply to me if you will, save you time.

    I have not seen any around here Roy, but that is not to say that there are none. I will be on the look out. Responding is never any trouble. Have a super fantastic day…
