When the Kowhai trees

drip with golden flowers we know it’s spring. Did you know our Kowhai is New Zealand’s na­tional flower? The sweet nec­tar in­side a Kowhai flower is a favourite food for tui and other na­tive birds. Af­ter flow­er­ing, seed pods dan­gle from the branches and in­side each pod are yel­low seeds. If you plant a seed this summer it will grow into a tree that might one day be taller than you.
