Olearia paniculata is a dense and fast growing shrub that is endemic to New Zealand and is commonly known as akiraho.

Akiraho is naturally distributed in mature, regenerating forest and forest margins usually on the eastern side between East Cape to Golden Bay and Canterbury. Since cultivation it now grows widely throughout New Zealand as a hedge plant.

The akiraho tree has golden- green foliage with slightly crinkled edges. In autumn the tree produces clusters of vanilla scented, creamy white flowers.

Does well in exposed and dry sites and reaches a height of approximately 3m. Wind and frost tolerant, good drainage is essential.
