General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
An innocuous plant that, having identified it, is suddenly everywhere

It has the tiniest little yellow flowers that look like 10 pin bowling pins.
Through the year it changes appearance dramatically
Over summer it sheds a lot of leaves and looks totally different to it's luscious spring time cover.
