Description

Branch of the poisonous tree tutu, in flower.

The accompanying text reads: This shrub grows to the height of six or seven feet in the open country. Cattle are often poisoned by eating too freely of the plant. The seeds of the little berries which succeed this flower are highly poisonous; but the Natives make a wine from the berries, carefully straining the juice from the seeds. This wine is very sickly in taste.

A close copy of Martha King's watercolour "Tutu or Tupakihi" [1842], ref. A-005-008
