Metrosideros 'Mistral' Details

Metrosideros ‘Mistral’ is a variety of Pohutukawa grown for its masses of crimson red flowers in summer. The showy flowers are complemented with dark green foliage which emerges with a layer of felt that tends to give the leaves a grey colouring. It typically grows to 4 m tall and the same wide, and can be contained with trimming. Best results with this tree are achieved when it is planted in a full sun on a well-drained site. This Southern Rata is tolerant of poor soils, dry periods, moderate frost, and coastal climates, but should be protected while it is establishing. Metrosideros ‘Mistral’ is an excellent choice for coastal gardens, adding to mixed plantings, trimming into a hedge, using as a backdrop for smaller plants, for screening, for shelter, or growing as a specimen.
