Wikipedia description

Hoheria angustifolia, the narrow-leaved lacebark or narrow-leaved houhere, is a species of flowering plant in the family Malvaceae, endemic to New Zealand.

It is an evergreen tree or shrub with a weeping habit and grows to 10 m (33 ft) tall. It is commonly described in literature with a diameter at breast height (DBH) of up to 30 centimetres (12 in), but botanist Hugh Wilson found a specimen in Hinewai Reserve with a DBH of 130 centimetres (51 in).

It has grey-green to dark green leaves, and white flowers from December to February. It has a divaricating small leaved habit while young until it gets to about 2 m (7 ft) high. The adult leaves are narrow and coarsely toothed hence the common name of narrow-leaved lacebark. Distribution is larger than any of the other lacebark species and can be found mostly in the eastern South Island, and in the North Island from Taranaki down.
