General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
The plant ~100mm high, flowers ~10mm across.
Typical vittadinia flowers (small lilac petals on top of a large sepal cup).
Unlike our others, this plant is dark green, with very little hairy on the the leaves or stem. This makes it look like a different genus until if flowers.
We've seen it flower in Mar, Apr, May, Sept, Oct & Nov, so it seems an Autumn & Spring flowering plant.
