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 Tawhaki, 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.

Best Mother’s Day gift idea!

Mum loved the pohutakawa! Unfortunately it didn't arrive on time even though the courier dispatch was so close to their address. It was worth the wait though! Lovely packaging and wonderful size for Mum to plant wherever her heart desires! Thanks Tree Gifts NZ! <3

Hey Tegs! Thanks so much for the feedback, yeah Covid sent Auckland couriers for a spin on Mother's Day week with so many in isolation. Thrilled to hear Mum loved your gift, may it bring her your love through the years whilst it grows. :) Lynnette

Pohutakawa

Recipients loved this. Much better than flowers that get binned. They now have a lasting record of their nuptials.

Great Presentation

Purchased for Mum and Dad for their anniversary, they thought it was a neat idea and couldn't believe you could send a tree! I will be back to purchase again :D
