“Rust Coloured Pomaderris”
SHRUB 2 to 4m TALL
Upright, bushy shrub with rusty-brown stems and dark green leaves with soft white undersides. Showy heads of creamy white flowers at the ends of the branches in spring are attractive to bees. Locally occurs in some gullies on Mt Coot-tha, leading into Ithaca Creek and Cubberla Creek. A larval host plant for the Yellow Jewel Butterfly; however it is thought there are now too few plants remaining locally to support this species.
