Kōwhai Tree


This is another tree I am studying here in Auckland at the Cornwall Park. The kōwhai is one of the best known native trees in New Zealand and best known for their brilliant yellow flowers that appear in profusion in Spring. There are eight species of kōwhai recognised in New Zealand. This one here is called Sophora microphylla.

My drawing is one of 40 selected artworks for the Botanical worldwide exhibition 2018.
Exhibition: 30.03. – 01.06.2018, at Auckland Botanic Gardens
