Metrosideros Fiji Fire™

Description

Metrosideros Fiji Fire

Just take a look at our photos before you read any further. Is this not a breath-taking plant?

Metrosideros Fiji Fire is named for its dark green foliage that emerges in a flush of red new growth and a spectacular summertime show of fluffy tangerine red flowers.

You might think that this is a delicate plant given the dramatic colour, but it’s pretty hardy, tolerating coastal conditions of wind and salt.

Because the leaves are dense and small and it’ll reach about three metres, Fiji Fire is a top-notch windbreak or hedge. If you need it a bit shorter he’s happy to be pruned throughout the year.

He’ll happily grow in well-watered pots, attracting native birds.

Phew, it’s getting hot around here.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I create a breathtaking windbreak or tall hedge and stand out as a feature plant in a large border.

  • I grow to: I’ll reach three metres tall and two metres wide.

  • Where to place me:  I like full sun, but I’ll cope with partial shade too.

  • How far to space me:  Give me a metre of room if you want to create a screen.

  • Soil Conditions: I grow best in well-watered soils of any type, but if yours is thin add some mulch to boost my fire. 

Please note unfortunately due to biosecurity regulations we cannot ship this product to South Australia.

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door
