Aotearoa… our well-loved lush green country where the natural landscapes are diverse and spectacular, the native trees and birdlife are so natural and beautiful.
New Zealand’s native trees are gorgeous and usually attract the lovely native birds. These trees give us the warm familiar feeling of our own kiwi culture, like the iconic New Zealand Christmas Tree with its bright crimson flowers heralding the arrival of the summer holidays. Planting native trees is an ethical practice involving giving New Zealand’s own trees back to their natural habitat.
Most of our trees are unique one-off’s and every tree is very individual, so our nursery stock is constantly changing. The selection of trees shown here is just a few of the distinctive trees that we offer and it is not a representation of what we currently have in stock.

Common Name: Rata and Pohutukawa natural hybrid
These Metrosideros ‘maungapiko’ NZ natives are a natural hybrid between Pohutukawa and Southern Rata, incorporating good frost tolerance with beautiful large crimson-red flowers through mid-summer. It holds the striking beauty of the southern Rata whilst maintaining the adaptability and vigour of the the Pohutukawa. Originally discovered on Great Barrier Island on the Hauraki Gulf by plantsman Graeme Platt. The mother tree on the island has unfortunately been recklessly destroyed to make way for a road. This species is rare in cultivation and worthy of protection.

Tanekaha Celery Pine is a native coniferous medium-size forest growing tree. It is an attractive native tree with a conical shape, often found growing naturally with the New Zealand Kauri and commonly grown in the North Island and in the Marlborough/Nelson area. Its common name ‘Celery Pine’ comes from the celery-like foliage of this graceful tree. The Maori made fairly extensive use of Tanekaha, as it is one of the strongest and most flexible native softwoods. Our photos show the very pretty miniature fruits that appear in spring/summer.
