General Species Information:
Found in the Murray Mallee SA, Coastal Areas and possibly elsewhere
While classed as a "prostrate shrub", we think anyone coming to our web site to find out what this plant is would look under our "Vines" (creepers & climbers) page; hence it's current location. Let us know what you think.
A typical white eucalypt / melaleuca type flower that Myrtales have, with red highlights; yet scattered around the ground.
They are well known for their fruits/berries.
