huts wrote: Hello I need help identify the tree in the picture. I am sure it is a Metrosideros, as we have many Metrosideros excelsa on the islands. But this one is not a M. excelsa, the leaves are rounder and less leathery, flowering takes place after summer while M. excelsa flowers in the beginning of summer. Any help is very much appreciated
