METROSIDEROS EXCELSA MISTRAL MISTRAL POHUTUKAWA in New Zealand

METROSIDEROS EXCELSA MISTRAL - MISTRAL POHUTUKAWA

A natural hybrid of Pohutakawa and Rata, Mistral forms to be a tidy upright growing tree. The characteristic of the rata makes it slower growing than excelsa cultivars and the Rata cross makes the leaf narrow, oval and pointed. Although flowering is not as prolific as excels, the flowers are an amazing deep scarlet red. Hardy to most conditions and soil types and can handle mild drought and coastal conditions.

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.
