General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA), and elsewhere
Small sprawling forb with green, purple and red coloured leaves.
The "flowers" grow on the end of long stems that lay on the ground well away from the root. They then stand up like little x-mas trees. The flowers are soft and don't have petals. They look more like seed heads.
