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.

PLANTING: Plant in a full sun location for rich foliage colour and prolific flowering. Tolerates part shade; might survive a light frost. Thrives in free draining soil.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 5m H x 2m W.
