Southern Rata x 10
Metrosideros Umbellata - Southern Rata - With leathery lance shaped leaves and vivid red flowers in summer this makes a stunning feature tree. A cold climate relative to pohutukawa, but able to withstand frosts. Being a slower grower this needs very little care, attention or pruning. As these are cutting grown specimens they have already started flowering and will put a spectacular display every Christmas.
Frost hardy in South Island where moderate frosts are experienced (Southland, West Coast, Marlborough, Coastal areas). In other South Island locations it may be successfully grown in sheltered positions or with protection when young.
Established height 2-3 metres (this will eventually grow very very large but that will take 100 years or so!).
These are reasonable quality seconds. They are slightly mishapen and variable size. Apart from that, they are healthy, strong growing plants. A great opportunity to get this awesome plant at an awesome price!
