These beautiful New Zealand Tree Fuchsia (or Kōtukutuku) earrings are so lovely and easy to wear and they look amazing on! They come packed in an elegant Wildside Gifts jewellery box. The earrings are specially treated with rhodium so that they are slow to tarnish.

According to the online encyclopedia of New Zealand "Kōtukutuku (Fuchsia excorticata) is considered to be the world’s largest fuchsia. In damp forest it can grow to 12 metres tall and form a trunk over 1 metre in diameter. Attractive, small flowers appear between August and December. They change from greenish-yellow to purple-red.

The flowers are rich in nectar and are visited by honey-eating birds, especially tūī, bellbirds and silvereyes. The dark purple berries, known as kōnini by Māori, are edible and taste like tamarillos."

The Fuchsia tree has beautiful, peachy, orange peeling bark that catches the light in the dappled shade of the forest. The stamens in the flowers have bright blue pollen!
