General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
Very similar to the Smooth Wallaby-bush.
Leaves are thicker and slightly curved (so they "wrap around" on the back instead of being flat). Branches are more orange.
The most striking difference is the red buds & "petals" on the flowers.
We only have a few of these compared to an abundance of Smooth.
