Notable Tree Kanuka, Kunzia ericoides.Kanuka, Kunzea ericoides
Location: Botanical Gardens
Significance: Large specimen

Sometimes called the White Tea Tree, Kanuka isn't as widely recognised as its close cousin, Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium). This may be because Manuka bears showy red flowers, aided by the efforts of plant hybridists. Manuka appear in variety in many private and public gardens.

Grown to maturity as a specimen, Kanuka has an airy open canopy form and an attractive fissured bark.

The Kanuka in the Botanical Gardens, more than 50 years old, is probably Napier's largest.
