ⓘ Hoheria sexstylosa

Hoheria sexstylosa, the long-leaved lacebark or ribbonwood, is a species of flowering plant in the family Malvaceae, endemic to New Zealand. It is an evergreen tree or shrub growing to 8 m tall by 6 m broad with glossy green leaves, and white flowers in summer and autumn. This tree tends to have a weeping graceful habit and is sometimes sold by nurseries with the name graceful lacebark. The Latin term sexstylosa means "six styles".

Distribution in the North island from Waikato and the Coromandel Peninsula South to Wellington, while in natural populations, appears to be North-West Nelson, inland Marlborough and banks Peninsula. Other populations may be naturalized.

In cultivation it is hardy but requires a protected site. Grade Stardust was awarded by the Royal society of growers of garden merit.
