Kāmahi

A good example of kāmahi (Weinmannia racemosa) can be found at Stu’s Lookout. It is a very common small tree throughout the park, with pale bark and reddish green leaves, and is noted for its sprays of nectar- forming white flowers (a bush honey tree). Kāmahi often starts life as an epiphyte on the trunks of tree ferns. Historically, the bark was used for tanning and dye.
