General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
A very small pale / grey green plant; almost white in bright sunlight.
It gets eaten, by summer, and then re-sprouts in winter.
To see our first flower we had to protect one of the larger plants from grazing by kangaroos; we placed a dead bush over it.
See our notes above under Corrugated Sida (Sida corrugata var corrugata) to see how we differentiate our local plants.
