This rare yellow-flowered Pōhutukawa is considered a "landmark tree" by the city of San Francisco. It was planted by Victor Reiter, founder of the California Horticultural Society, circa 1930s. I was told that it's one of only three such trees in California. Metrosideros excelsa 'Aurea' originates from the Bay of Plenty region of Aotearoa New Zealand.
The white-flowered branches on the left are from a unique Leptospermum hybrid cultivated by Reiter.
