A poppy tree will again be blossoming in Matangi for Anzac Day with the red crafted flowers set to brighten more of the Waikato district than ever.

A poppy tree has blossomed in Matangi in time for Anzac Day thanks to a local team of enthusiastic knitters.

One tree in a Waikato-wide project to decorate trees throughout the district, Matangi’s poppy tree provides a place to remember the devastation of war and all those affected by it.

Locals are welcome to attach a poppy or message of their own.
