General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee)
This is Fred, our biggest Mallee tree.
We have been wanting to id him for a year now and finally he's in flower and we've got it

Most of our Mallee's are so similar it's very hard to tell them apart. But these Giants are more easily distinguished by their size and shape.
However, you still need the caps and nut to be sure.
