Hi Richard. It has large, roundish leaves (as its Latin name suggests) during the wet season and drops them as soon as the dry season starts in early May, to conserve moisture. Then it flowers sparsely through the dry season on bare wood.

Thanks for reply.
Another uniquely Aussie natural occurrence.
Like your magnetic ants. Great stuff.
Keep it coming.
I love that Top End photos you people post.

This is what we call white apple, Syzygium eucalyptoides subsp. bleeseri, (though quite unrelated to real apples). In the Northern Territory's Top End these flowers will in about 2 months become delicious native fruits, high in vitamin C, related to the lilli pilli.

Oblong Sundew with flower spike.

Unfortunately these tiny plants seem to have been wiped out by the hot spell we had.

Nice, Lester...I really like the last one. The drops of dew are so cool.
