Metrosideros 'Tahiti' Details

Metrosideros ‘Tahiti’ is an outstanding dwarf variety of Pohutukawa due to its compact form, attractive foliage, and showy flowers. New foliage emerges with a silver colouring and matures to become grey-green. The foliage serves as a lovely complement to the clusters of red-orange flowers which are borne throughout the year. It typically grows to 1 m tall and the same wide, performing best when planted in full sun on a well-drained site. It is tolerant of poor soils, dry periods, light frost once established, and coastal climates. Metrosideros ‘Tahiti’ is an excellent choice for coastal gardens, adding to a mixed planting, or mass planting for a wonderful display. This dwarf Southern Rata also suits container growing, being trimmed into a low hedge, including in a border, or being planted around outdoor living areas.
