Origin: New Zealand
Lacebarks are a group of beautiful floriferous trees, which in late summer are covered in masses of starry white flowers. Leaves are glossy green, or grey-green, and, in juveniles, often deeply toothed.
There are five species in this genus and a number of cultivars; H. sexstylosa is one of the commonest in cultivation.
