Hoheria sexstylosa - a species endemic to New Zealand - is a fast growing evergreen tree with deeply serrated leaves, and masses of white scented star-like flowers in autumn, which have six pinkish styles - hence its Latin name "sexstylosa" which means "six styles". The developed fruit, which has red to pink coloured wings, appears in May and extends into winter. Insects pollinate while the seeds are dispersed by the wind. The bark was traditionally used by the Maori and early European settlers in New Zealand to make rope, and its white timber was used in cabinet-making.
