MELIA AZEDARACH INDIAN BEAD TREE In New Zealand

MELIA AZEDARACH - INDIAN BEAD TREE

A medium sized canopying tree with a spreading crown and sparsely branched limbs. The bark becomes fissured with age and leaves are a fresh green and oblong in shape. It has a cute lilac flower followed by marble-sized yellow/orange berries over the winter which are a real hit with the native wood pigeon. A great specimen for a larger area that needs shade in summer, it also makes a great street or avenue tree.

Good Roots………

Roots are the anchors and feeding mechanism for a tree, if these are not right then the success of the tree is compromised.  What might look like a big strong tree may not be mirrored by it root system.  Icon Trees is one of the few nurseries that identify with this issue and dispose of these trees instead of growing them on to the next grade or supplying trees that will not successfully reach maturity.
