The Makomako (Wineberry) is a small fast growing tree or shrub that grows throughout New Zealand. It has lovely distinctive flowers that are coloured from cream to dark red.)

The Makomako plant was used in a variety of ways by both Maori and Europeans.  It was used as a salve for wounds, as a dye, as food and a sweet juice and the shoots were burnt into charcoal for making gunpowder!
