Wildflowers of the World Group, 8th February 2014

Kōwhai are small, woody legume trees in the genus Sophora native to New Zealand. Their natural habitat is beside streams and on the edges of forest, in lowland or mountain open areas. I found this one growing near to the Aratiatia rapids downstream from Lake Taupo on the Waikato River, in the North Island of New Zealand.
Kōwhai trees grow throughout the country and are a common feature in New Zealand gardens. The name kōwhai comes from the Māori word for yellow—a reference to the colour of the flower. Despite having no official status as such, the blooms of the kōwhai are widely regarded as being New Zealand’s national flower. (Technical data from Wikipedia)
