With its small leaves, which are lush green and have a serrated edge, the Native Ribbonwood is one of the trees you just sense as being distinctly Kiwi. When young, the interwoven branches create an aesthetic that is as enticing as it is seemingly haphazard. Come summer, yellow green flowers have a soft and relaxed appearance. Ideal as a native street tree, it grows quickly in an upright columnar form. It’s a deciduous and hardy tree which eventually produces an open and rounded crown shaped head, as it reaches a size of 5 x 2m.
Suitable for: Hardy street tree, group plantings.
Features: Upright form when younger tree, hardy.
Botanical Name: PLAGIANTHUS regius
