Bush minuria (Minuria cunninghamii)

This small hairless shrub has slender rigid branches, and grows to about 40cm in height when alone, or to 1 metre or more when suppported by larger plants. The Bush minuria is quite common on sandy red earths, often in the protection of such species as the Bluebush and Bladder saltbush. Flowering occurs mainly in spring and occasionally in autumn, and is usually quite profuse. The bush is then covered in white, fluffy, hair-crowned seeds.
