Hangehange, Geniostoma Ligustrifolium
Hangehange is a bushy shrub up to 4 m in height with slender brittle branches. It is often overlooked, and its leaves are a softer shade of green, which brings a beauty to the under canopy. It is found mainly in lowland and coastal forests across the North Island and as far south as Marlborough. Its leaves are opposite, pointed and oval. The scent of its greenish-white flowers can be quite heady in the spring. The flowers are borne in groups (cymes) up to 3cm in diameter at the base of the leaves, along the branches and around the trunk of the bush. Each flower has five 3 mm long sepals with five petals that are joined into a 6 mm long green-to-white tube, coated in spreading hairy lobes. This relates to its Latin name, which means hairy throat, and refers to the flower tube. The fruit develops in summer and is a black capsule that splits into 2 valves. When the seed capsule opens it reveals seeds that are contained within an enlarged pulpy placenta exposing only their dark tips.

It will reflect illusion where there is illusion and show up convoluted pathways and unnecessary complications for what they are. Hangehange is a remedy for those who are caught up in fantasy and illusion. It will support us with the pain that comes waking up from the illusion.
It allows herself to be visible and invisible this is the nature of her protection, protection designed to support while waiting for the right moment. When we are feeling vulnerable she allows us to be present with the wound without falling in. Hangehange offers us insight into our dreams. Hangehange calls to us to remember another time, a slowing down of time, and the remedy is particularly good for children who go at a different pace to those around them.
When we are feeling under pressure Hangehange gives us the space we need to act. It is helpful when dealing with an overload, particularly information cramming, receiving, integrating and extending the information we receive. Hangehange gifts the ability to pause and receive information through our entirety. We should use this essence when fear has dried up our relationship to life, where we have lost our exuberance. Go gently in finding the natural connection to life. For pets it is helpful if they have absorbed too much of human emotions and mental energy, and for cats and dogs that have been over indulged.
Soft rain cleanses,
I take time to listen gentle
I carry her asleep
through the heaped discarded dreams
with viridian green, with sap green
the spaces to wake up.
