Cabbage tree, Harataonga
Found in areas where water is plentiful, like this peaceful seaside lagoon, the cabbage tree speaks strongly of New Zealand. The clusters of sweet-scented white flowers contrast with lush green native forests inland. Early European settlers used the young leaves as a substitute for cabbage, which led to its common name. The root was traditionally cooked and eaten by Maori people.
