From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Arthropodium cirratum (rengarenga, renga lily, New Zealand rock lily, rengarenga, or maikaika) is a species of herbaceous perennial plant, endemic to New Zealand, where it may once have been farmed. It is used for medicine as well as food, and has symbolic importance in traditional Māori culture.The Māori name rengarenga is a reduplication of Proto-Polynesian *renga which in other related languages corresponds to turmeric, especially its powdered form (see Samoan: lega, Hawaiian: lena); this association is due to both plants' similar stem and root characteristics.
