Ixerba brexioides flowering and pollination

Hi there,
I'm currently doing a thesis investigating the pollination mechanism of Ixerba brexioides (tawari). If anyone has any information to offer about flowering times, locations, pollination observations, or other general information about this magnificent tree I would love to hear from you!

Hi Rachel,
I remember seeing it flowering prolifically along the Waikareiti track, Urewera National Park in the second week of January. I think it was 2003.

Hi Rachel

From memory Ixerba tends to flower from about mid December through to mid January - but, as with all things it varies and I have seen it flowering in November and February.

Saw trees in full bud last week in forest near Te Wera, Matawai if that helps. Such a beautiful thing I agree.
