Leptospermum scoparium. It is an evergreen shrub with mid green leaves of variable shape between 7 - 20 mm long. Though there is little discernable difference between the Australian and New Zealand forms, the Australian form is much more cold tolerant and will accept temperatures down to -7°C.
The leaves are dark green, discolorous and glossy on both surfaces. The flower is typical of the Solanum family being a rich purple with prominant, bright yellow anthers and the fruit is an egg-shaped green berry that ripens to a rich orange.
Acacia drummondii. DRUMMOND'S WATTLE. (This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List). The leaves are bluish-grey, divided and feather-like while the flowers are deep gold rods appearing singly in Spring.
Acacia conferta. Crowded Leaf Wattle. It is drought hardy but frost tender. The flowers appear in Autumn and Winter as bright yellow solitary balls. All my seed travels safely with bubble wrap protection.
