MERYTA SINCLAIRII PUKA In New Zealand

MERYTA SINCLAIRII - PUKA

A medium sized NZ Native tree with thick, glossy, large green leaves and a straight upright growing habit which can spread out into a crown as the tree matures to create a canopy. The trunk has a fleshy top while the main body hardens into wood. A real feature in the garden. The form of Puka allows it to be trimmed to contain its size. Best trimmed in the Spring to maximise growth; remove old looking leaves.

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.
