Hoheria populnea (lacebark, houhere)
Hoheria populnea commonly known as lacebark, is found naturally in lowland forests of the Northern North Island. It grows into a graceful tree of 4-6m, with pointed oval fresh green leaves with serrated edges. Starry white flowers appear in great profusion in late summer and autumn. The quick growth of this tree makes it useful for boundary planting or as a very attractive screen. It can also be used as a feature plant.
