Fuscospora cliffortioides (Mountain Beech) Details

Commonly known as Mountain Beech, this is a large, evergreen tree native to NZ. The foliage comprises small, dark green leaves which are held densely of short stems in fan-like sprays. Masses of tiny, red flowers are borne across the tree in spring. It grows with a broad and somewhat rounded habit to about 18 m tall and 6 m wide, performing best when planted in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained site that does not dry out. It is tolerant of frost and cool climates but does require wind protection while establishing. Mountain Beech makes for a lovely specimen in a larger garden or park, and is commonly added to native and revegetation plantings.
