Pittosporum bicolor (Pittosporaceae) 1:56

Pittosporum bicolor is a common and widespread small, wet forest tree. The woody fruit opening to expose a mass of sticky red seeds, and the two coloured flowers make this species very distinctive. The flowers can range from burgundy red to yellow on the outside, but are lighter on the inside. Without flowers or fruit, this species could be confused with Lomatia polymorpha (Proteaceae).
