Taiwanese Cherry. Pendulous wine coloured blossoms – Tuis love these very early spring flowers full of nectar. Bloom mid August 1 month after the seed producing first flowering Campanulata – this Superba the sterile hybrid & not the seeding one banned in Auckland region. Its a shame about the parent seeding as its such vital nectar for insects & birds in late July when very little food around for them. Ive been told anecdotally that there are indeed Campanulatas growing wild & spreading in the Taupo region – the Tuis will be so happy about that! Shame the humans aren’t?

Superba is 1 of a group of Campanulata hybrids bred by various nurserymen that Tuis use for food. These are the lovely carmine red Felix Jury, baby pink daintier Okame, pink later larger Sargent Cherry – plant all of these to flower over 6-8 weeks just before the kowhais bloom to continue the feeding of the birds. Choice of all these brands in our stock – & back to the Superbas we have sev 3m 4 yr olds for $80 with flower buds all over them & 1 yr 2m trees which wont flower til next yr for $40…….
