Gumbi Gumbi is an important indigenous medicine plant. This attractive native Australian plant is also called native apricot due to its ripe orange fruits, which are not eaten. Gumbi is a small tree or shrub with a weeping habit. Once established the plant will tolerate both frost and drought. Plant in full sun/part shade in well drained soil, or keep your Gumbi in a pot.
The fresh or dried leaves can be used to make a tea, using one or two leaves per cup of boiling water. This is a strong herb so use sparingly unless you are under the care of a trained herbalist.
There are a limited number of these plants for sale in 50mm square tubes.
The young plant benefits from staking.
Pittosporum angustifolium is also called; Weeping Pittosporum, Gumbi Gumbi, Gumby Gumby, Native apricot
