  1. Yvonne – NZ – Wow what a name!!! What is the common name? We went for a drive around the mountain yesterday to check out the tuis around Eden Gardens. The Taiwanese cherries not out in full but enough to attract 50 or 60 tuis to the nectar. Always amazing watching them swooping and making lots of noise! They are black/iridescent blue green with a white wattle under their chin. Quite large – bigger than a black bird and chase other birds. Follow the nectar trees, start their singing – imitating – very loud pre dawn. We have hundreds around our suburb which is central city – amazing! There are lots of magnolias out and at Eden Gardens heaps of virayas, camelias etc. The tulips are just starting to bloom. Look up on the web – a true treasure in the middle of a city. Was an old quarry and next door to the Auckland Government House. It is run mostly by volunteers and has a great cafe in the garden. Very sheltered and quiet so great in any weather!

  2. This is a truly beautiful shrub/ small tree. I was captivated by it in a fellow blogger’s garden this past spring! A must have for the shade.
