With proper care, your tree will grow into a beautiful and healthy tree that will provide you with many years of enjoyment.

3. How tall do wharangi trees grow?

Wharangi trees typically grow to be 5-8 metres tall, but can reach heights of up to 10 metres in ideal conditions. They are fast-growing and can reach their full height within 10-15 years.

4. What does wharangi mean?

The word "wharangi" has two meanings in Māori:

  1. A native tree with shiny untoothed leaves dotted with fine glands, small green flowers and shiny black seeds in small dry capsules. Found in coastal and lowland forests of the North and northern South Islands. (Melicope ternata)
  2. Bracken, a creeping native ground fern spread by underground rhizomes which were an important food source for Māori. Harsh fronds on smooth chestnut-brown stems. Very common in open places throughout Aotearoa/New Zealand. (Pteridium esculentum)

The two meanings of whārangi are related to the plant's use by Māori. The leaves of the Melicope ternata tree were used to make sweet-smelling hair oils and perfumes, while the bracken fern was an important food source.
