Thank you Tony and Jenny Dominelli for confirming the id of this species for us

General Species Information:
Found in the Murray Mallee SA and possibly elsewhere
Thank you to Darren Schmitke for showing us this amazing area of fire recovery. A bush fire destroyed this area 2.5 years before. He's never seen Dampiera thrive like this, in decades of experience exploring local reserves.
In one day these three species were all seen in flower together.
These were considerably larger and more lanky than the other two Dampiera's we saw on the day.
