Other names: Desert Quandong or Sweet Quandong

General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee)
Another species whose leaves are similar to both E. longifolia & P. angustifolium.
The leaves are much lighter/greyer green without a proper stalk. Perhaps slightly fatter, but still long with a "hooked" pointed tip.
Quandong start as a parasite of the roots of other plants. Having established themselves we believe them to be self sufficient.
