Hedycarya arborea (pigeonwood)

Product Description

Hedycarya arborea, commonly known as pigeonwood, is found in forests throughout the North Island and as far south as Banks Peninsula. It is an attractive tree, growing 5-10m with dark green oblong leaves with shallowly serrated edges. The flowers are insignificant but fragrant, with male and female arising on seperate trees. The bright orange red berries are a favourite of the native wood pigeon, hence the common name, but trees of both sexes are needed for the berries to be produced. Pigeonwood prefers a sheltered site with plenty of moisture and good soil in semi-shade. Frost tender when young. Propagation by seed or cuttings.
