General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
Would never have picked this as a salt bush.
We were convinced it was some sort of pea, related to the common flat-pea (Platylobium obtusangulum) because of the triangular / 3-point / spade / arrowhead leaves.
But we were browsing through Entwood Sanctuary's species list, finding photo's on the web for species we haven't seen and there it was, triangular leaves with 3 points! Identified by chance, but we'll take the win
Light green leaves going darker with age, tiny green ball flowers and bright red berry fruits.
