How to grow Alectryon excelsus (Titoki)

Commonly known as Titoki, this NZ native is a handsome, evergreen tree growing to about 8 m tall and 3 m wide. It carries glossy, green foliage which becomes interspersed with sprays of woolly, rust coloured flowers during summer which gives the tree an interesting red-brown colouring. Both the flowers and scarlet coloured berries that result are great for attracting birds as well as butterflies. The spreading habit of this tree makes it a lovely shade tree and for this reason it is often grown as a specimen or avenue tree. It responds well to trimming and can be used as a screen or large hedge. For best results this tree should be planted in full sun on a fertile, well-drained site. Young trees can be damaged by frost and they do not like heavy, wet soils.
