Pohutukawa Native Tree Of New Zealand
The New Zealand Pohutukawa
( pronounced> Paw-who-tu-ka-wa)
The Fiery Red Flowering Pohutukawa Tree of New Zealand ,also known as the Christmas Tree ,as it breaks forth in a brilliant display of fire red flowers throughout the Christmas period ,has always been one of my favourite trees. Stunning and beautiful.!!
I have quite a few favourite flowers which always seem to evoke all kinds of happy ,peaceful moments, but I always seem to come back to the Pohutukawa flower. My dad was the real gardener in our family when I was growing up and he made it all look so simple and effortless. The rest of us pottered around or started our flowerbeds with a hiss and a roar ,only to end up losing interest along the way.
The NZ Pohutukawa is also known as the New Zealand Christmas Tree since its flowers bloom prolifically in December.

Conservation I read some time ago of a group of dedicated people calling themselves the "Crimson Brigade' who actively seek to educate and protect this tree from its newest threat , the introduced Brush-tail Possum which strips the tree of its leaves.
