Kowhai-ngutu-kaka - 2d Issued: 11 July 1960 The name kowhai-ngutu-kaka shows that the Maori recognised the close relationship between this plant and the yellow kowhai, at the same time likening its flowers to the beak of a native parrot, the kaka. A soft woody shrub rarely exceeding 1.8 metres, the kaka beak 'Clianthus puniceus', as it is commonly known, has curved and pointed red flowers about 10 cm long. I have a range of images available. Stamps issued before 1936 may be reproduced, however those after are subject to copywrite. Postmarks and variations in stamp issue colours add to the unique nature of the historic and one off piece.
