Metrosideros 'Spring Fire' - NZ Christmas bush

DESCRIPTION: A large shrub to small tree with bright lime green soft new growth, large dark green leaves year round, and eye-catching fluffy orange-red pincushion flowers during spring and intermittently through the year. Slower growing than other metrosideros.

HEIGHT & WIDTH: 5m H x2m W.
