  1. Metrosideros excelsa

  2. Pohutukawa. Is it a monocot?

  3. Nup Pohutukawa is a dicot. A rule of thumb to help with distinguishing dicot and monocots is that all grasses and grass-like plants are monocots, all NZ trees (apart from the cabbage tree family) are Dicots. Just think complex leaves (dicot) vs strap-like leaves (monocot)...
