Description

A yellow flowered, multi-stemmed suckering shrub 0.3 - 1.0 m high, with shoots rising from extensive rhizomes (underground stems). Young stems are moderately hairy and dull red in colour. The succulent leaves are alternate, linear-oblong, to 2.7 cm long and 2.0 mm wide. Flower buds are yellow-green, with red base, prominently 4-angled. Fruit is an oval, fleshy drupe, dull green turning yellow, about 15 mm long.

Distribution

Restricted to the Newnes Plateau in the Blue Mountains, north of Lithgow. Was only discovered in 1989 and all known locations occur within Newnes State Forest.

Habitat and ecology

  • Occurs in dry sclerophyll forests and woodlands on sandy soils.
  • Stoloniferous (has underground horizontal stems) and is thought to be clonal. Hence, each location may comprise only one to a few individuals.
  • Flowers January to March, possibly with sporadic flowering in other months.
