This is a native creeper that we have in a hanging basket at home and the waxeyes love it.they produce fruit in autumn which they also like to pick at.
This is a rata we have growing at home in flower.the verigated version called metrosideros umbellata harlequin.
I saw these amazing specimens as I was passing a park near by. Most of them were yellow with a few red ones. They are an amazing yellow colour and a nice point of difference from the red. Apparently their a natural hybrid found in the 70's on an island off the coast near tauranga I think.
