Rata Vine Tree – Page Print
There are two kinds of rata trees in New Zealand (pronounced rah-tah). This is the Northern Rata which usually begins as an epiphyte, growing on top of another tree then sending its roots down like vines. Eventually it covers and smothers the host tree but by then the rata has grown huge and strong enough to stand alone.
The southern rata is a regular tree that grows from a seed in the ground. Its bright red flowers make a stunning display amongst the otherwise green bush in summer.
