It is a smaller tree than the mainland Titoki (Alectryon excelsus).
Red / Pink flowers which are bisexual (have both male (androecium) and female (gynoecium) reproductive units) or staminate (having stamens but no pistils) are produced from October to December.
From December to April scarlet fruit with a black seed develops.
This shrub is now sold in specialised nurseries.
