Cyathea medullaris

In the forest, Mamaku fronds — growing up to 6m in length — form a stunning umbrella-like canopy to ensure the plants below retain the vital moisture they need to thrive. The koru fronds have become a national symbol of regeneration, new life and new beginnings. For generations, the spiral shoots were a traditional food of Māori, while the plant’s extract was known as a powerful healer, used for rejuvenating, cooling and hydrating the skin.




Inner pith eaten raw or boiled. Decoction used for bringing balance for women's issues.
