Looking to add some native flair to your outdoor space? Look no further than the Sophora microphylla, also known as Kowhai. This evergreen shrub or small tree, native to New Zealand, grows up to 8 metres tall and wide, with shiny oval leaflets and many racemes of brightly coloured, pea-like yellow flowers in early spring. What sets the Sophora microphylla apart from other Kowhai species is its smaller leaves and flowers – perfect for those looking for a more delicate look. After the vibrant flowers come the distinctly segmented pods, each containing six or more hard, yellow seeds that quickly identify the presence of a nearby Kowhai tree. While most Kowhai trees lose their leaves quickly after blooming, the Sophora microphylla holds onto its foliage. And if you're worried about attracting honeybees, take note – the nectar is toxic to this species. Add some New Zealand charm to your garden or outdoor space with the distinct and delicate Sophora microphylla.
