Laurelia novae-zelandiae (Pukatea) Details

Commonly known as Pukatea, this is a NZ native tree that thrives in damp areas. This slow growing tree has a distinctive buttressed trunk which gives it lateral support. It bears attractive, glossy green leaves with a serrated edge, and grows slowly to eventually reach 25 m tall and 10 m wide. It performs best when planted in full sun or partial shade on a consistently damp soil. It is tolerant of moderate wind, reasonable shade, moderate frost, and short periods of dry. Puketea is commonly planted around swampy areas or on the edge of a stream, grown as a specimen, or included in a revegetation exercise.
