Kōrero: Shrubs and small trees of the forest



Needle-leaved īnanga (Dracophyllum longifolium), also known as īnaka or turpentine shrub, is the most widespread of New Zealand’s grass trees. A member of the heath family, it is found on infertile soils in a variety of locations from exposed coasts to alpine shrublands. The name ‘turpentine’ refers to its ability to burn well, even when wet.
