White flowering large tree of up to 8m in height.
Metrosideros bartlettii is a large canopy tree that is endemic to New Zealand, found naturally growing in three forest remnants near Spirits Bay in the North Island. Also known as Bartlett's rātā, Metrosideros bartlettii looks similar to northern rātā (Metrosideros robusta) but stands apart because of the white flowers it produces and because of its extreme rarity in the wild. The white flowers occur from october to november and resemble the pohutukawa flower. Naturally the tree grows in coastal or lowland forest and in cultivation the tree will do best in open sunny sites with well drained, fertile soils. The tree can grow up to 30m but in cultivation it more commonly ranges between 8-10m. An endangered species that would be a treasure in any garden or landscape.
