  1. I grow one from this genus, (a low, prostrate form), known to me commonly as 'emu bush'. Particularly like the smell when brushing past the foliage. This is a superb shot highlighting one of the little flowers. Posted 14 days ago

It is a shrub or small tree with dark green, sticky leaves and flowers that are red on top fading to yellow-green below. Extracts from this plant have been shown to have significant antimicrobial activity.
