Kunzea ericoides, kanuka

Kunzea ericoides, kanuka has to be the best all-purpose tree for Hawke’s Bay conditions: it is fast growing, likes dry sites, creates excellent quality shade, and even makes a terrific hedge. There’s a really nice hedge in St Georges Road to check out. Plant kanuka for all sorts of reasons, not least because its a great habitat for stick insects.
