Gumbi Gumbi is a small tree or shrub with a weeping habit. Although Gumbi Gumbi is also called a Native Apricot, its fruit shouldn't be considered bush tucker. A more common and proffered way to use this plant is the aromatic tea, made from fresh or dried leaves steeped in hot water. It is also featured widely in Aboriginal bush medicines for relief against colds and coughs. 

 It is resistant to drought and frost, and grows in a range of soils but it is best to choose a well-drained soil/loam mix. If planting in pots use a premium potting mix located in a sunny position and water well throughout the summer. 

 It makes a great addition to any native garden or balcony.
