Native Pōhutukawa Tree Gift

Regular price $90.00 Sale

The magnificent native Pōhutukawa tree is well known for its spreading shape and beautiful red flowers showing in December and January.  For this reason, the Pōhutukawa is often referred to as the NZ Christmas Tree.   The flowers are composed of stamens, giving them their distinctive brush-like look.

The Pōhutukawa tree has a deep spiritual meaning for Māori which connects the beginning and ending of human life. In mythology, the red flowers of the tree represent the blood of the warrior Tāwhaki, a spirit ancestor who showed the way from earth to heaven.  He subsequently fell to earth and the crimson flowers are said to represent his blood.

Perfect remembrance gift

Some close friends had a parent pass away while we were in isolation which meant we were unable to give our condolences in person or attend the funeral. Treegifts were recommended by another friend, which was perfect! They rang to check we had chosen the correct type of tree for the climate, and confirm everything. Our friends loved this idea, and are looking forward to planting it in their garden in remembrance of Granny. We will be visiting to check on our tree sometime soon! Thanks so much!
