VITEX LUCENS PURIRI IN NEW ZEALAND

VITEX LUCENS - PURIRI

A NZ icon in the landscape, this large growing native canopy tree has glossy ribbed leaves and an upright form with a large spreading crown. The bark is thin, flaky and light brown in colour. Bright red berries provide an excellent source of food for birdlife, especially the native Wood Pigeon. This is a good street tree or specimen for the larger garden or landscape and it can add a lush back drop or screening to a native garden situation. Its spreading growth habit provides shelter from the sun when it matures.

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.
