Pagoda Tree

Notable Tree Pagoda Tree, Sophora japonica.Pagoda Tree, Sophora japonica
Location: Wharerangi Cemetery
Significance: Uncommon species

Having had to compete against other trees for space, this specimen in the Wharerangi Cemetery is not the best example. Aged 40-plus years, it is, however, the largest Pagoda Tree to be found on a city reserve.

Native, to Japan, China and Korea, this deciduous tree's white flowers are borne on long panicles, followed by pods resembling bead necklaces.
