Found lowland forests through northern parts of North Island. Brownish green leaves are highly aromatic when rubbed.

Phebalium nudum is a native New Zealand shrub also known as mairehau. The mairehau was most commonly found growing naturally in Kauri forest, for this reason it needs a sloping ground to provide good drainage and semi shade over its root system. The small shrub has attractive pointy green foliage with a reddish tinge and it produces clusters of white flowers in early summer. Both the flowers and foliage of the mairehau are scented and were traditionally used by Māori as a perfume.
