Pomaderris kumeraho- Golden Tainui, Kumarahou.

20 years ago

Pomaderris kumeraho- Golden Tainui, Kumarahou.

I recently heard that this plant native to NZ is used in Maori (I appologise if I've mispelled this) folk medicine to treat lung disorders such as Asthma, Bronchitis, colds etc.

I thought I'd ask you easterly neighbours, since it is native to NZ.

Some details on growing and more thorough usage informantion would be appreciated.

Does anyone in Australia who may be reading this have some growing?

Thanks for any help.

    I have heard the taste is worse than the complaint.
