Kowhai is one of the best known native trees to New Zealand and many claim that it is our unofficial flower.

Either way, the Kowhai is a beautiful tree that can grow up to 25m high and in Spring produces a bright yellow flower that can be seen in the picture.

The Kowhai attracts bees and many of our wonderful birdlife such as Tuis, bellbirds and Kaka.

With Spring arriving, it also means Summer and outdoor dining is also just around the corner.
