Metrosideros Cream Ridge is a hardy trunked shrub or small tree that forms glossy green foliage, with rich, creamy white margins. During spring and summer, spectacular crimson pincushion flowers blooms from the tip of the plant and provides nectar for local birds and wildlife.
Once grown and cultivated, it is well suited as a hedge and is ideal for screening as the foliage is incredibly dense.
