Plant / Product Features:
Found in damp bush from lowlands to moderate altitudes from North Cape to Dunedin but largely absent from Westland, Fiordland and Stewart Island. This symbolic NZ native 'Ponga' produces bright green, shiny fronds up to 3 metres long. Fronds have beautiful silver undersides and a white stalk. The trunk is patterned with the bases of the fallen fronds. Prefers shade to semi-shade and a good moist soil and needs protection from wind to look attractive. The pith was used used by Maori as a poulstice for skin rashes and the fronds as soft matting on floors, placed silver side down to avoid skin irritation from the spores. Pakeha settlers used ponga trunks to build the walls of their huts.

Landscaping Uses:
Good planted in groups or as a specimen. Fit well with a tropical design as well as creating a very New Zealand atmosphere. Use the ponga trunks to make walls and fences.
