Alectryon excelsus  Titoki

Probably the most widely planted native tree in New Zealand. The Titoki forms a round-headed tree with deep green glossy foliage. The unusual small red fruits are a food source for many native birds.

Plant Care

Titoki thrive in any well drained soil. They should be staked well until established and benefit from a deep layer of mulch which will keep the roots cool and moist during dry spells.

Application

Titoki have been used extensively as street trees but make a bold evergreen shade tree in the garden. Titoki respond well to trimming and shaping and can be used as a pleached or stilt hedge or as large topiary subjects.

History

Titoki leaves and oil have been used as an insect repellant to ward off mosquito and sandflys. Early settlers perhaps dreaming of English forests often referred to Titoki as the New Zealand oak.
