April 25th 2004

Melicope ternata Wharangi.

Shrub or small tree reaching 8 m. 3 foliate.
North Island near the coast

A particularly attrractive coastal shrub. Beautiful verdant green colouration and glossy trifoliate leaves make this plant the ideal specimen for a small garden. Black glossy seeds also add to the attractiveness of this small tree.
Seeds should germinate after one or two months in a warm (>14 degrees C) seed raising mix.
