General Species Information:
Found in the Murray Mallee SA, Adelaide Hills, Coastal Areas and possibly elsewhere
There does seem to be some colour variation with the flowers, from pale (almost white) to dark (almost purple). The smaller variations we've seen with our eyes are hard to notice with the camera. They do seem to darken with age as well.
Leaves are between 30-100mm long and 10mm wide. Flowers are 25mm wide.
