Coastal species from the Poor Knights island

Sorry, no images to display

Carmichaelia williamsii is a strictly coastal species of broom which is endemic to the North Island, found mainly grown on the Poor Knights and Alderman Islands. The broom has photosynthetic branches that serve as leaves and produce pea-like yellow to white flowers from July through to October. The branches of the Carmichaelia williamsii are erect, 15mm wide, yellow-green in colour and have wavy edges that make the 2m by 2m shrub appear robust. The native broom naturally grows in open forest, scrub, cliff faces and does the best in warmer climates.

Although the Carmichaelia williamsii is rare in the wild it is grown by specialised nurseries.
