Rare white and yellow pōhutukawa trees

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours. Our beautiful red pōhutukawa trees (or New Zealand's Christmas trees) are just about in full bloom.
However, not all pōhutukawa trees are red. Have you seen any yellow or white pōhutukawa trees in your local area? We'd love to see your photos. Feel free to leave a photo in the comments or email me the tree's location at caroline.williams@stuff.co.nz
