Mahoe Flower. For use in a wall art composition or alone.  The Mahoe (Melicytus lanceolatus) is a shrub usually spreading with distinctive light bark often covered by patches of white lichen, a feature which gives it it’s common name. It is found throughout New Zealand in lowland to lower mountain forest. Maori used a flat piece of mahoe wood rubbed vigorously with a pointed piece of kaikomako (Pennantia corymbosa) to produce fire. The flower is not easy to see as it is quite small, but has a beautiful plastic form.
