Cabbage Tree(Ti Kauka)
A striking feature of the New Zealand landscape. Holds a special place in the hearts of people. It is the tallest lily in the world.
Maori used Ti Kauka for food, medicine, hunting, clothing, even chimneys!
The Maori say if the tree flowers profusely, a hot summer will follow!
Early explorers also used the leaves for food. Look out for this iconic tree; it can teach us much.
