Metrosideros excelsa Maori Princess  Pohutakawa

There have been many selections made of New Zealand’s Pohutakawa over the years but this one has withstood the test of time. Maori Princess has a naturally conical growth habit with dark green foliage and deep crimson flowers.

Plant Care

Maori Princess Pohutakawa requires little care after planting. It will grow happily in most free draining soil conditions, is at home on either of our wind swept coasts, and responds well to trimming and pruning.

Application

With its clean straight, often-single trunk, compact upright crown and lack of aerial roots, Maori Princess is the best Pohutakawa selection to date for street and avenue planting. It responds well to trimming and will make an excellent hedge or screen if the foliage is allowed to persist to ground level.

History

The original Maori Princess is a large tree planted in New Plymouth possibly in the 1940’s. Its original provenance (geographic origin) is unknown but since its merits were discovered many thousands of its cutting grown offspring have been planted throughout New Zealand’s urban areas.
