Sophora tetraptera

The Sophora tree, a native of New Zealand  is now in  full bloom, before the foliage arrives. To find it in the Walled Garden walk through the gates and turn left. Follow the path through the entrance to the next section and turn right, strolling to the top of the path.
These trees are known as Kowhai in New Zealand and are grown in many gardens there. All parts are poisonous but the Maori traditionally used it for medicines.
