Thanks to Michael V. for heading me in the right direction for identification!
Any help with more specific identification would be appreciated :)

The flower is 3mm (or one tenth of an inch) from petal tip to petal tip, about
one twelfth of the size it appears in this view!
The leaves are 2mm to 3mm across and 16mm to 20mm long.
The plant is slightly bushy and stands about 70cm (or a little over 2 feet) tall.
The flowers have a lovely honey like fragrance.

The plant, a gift from the birds or the wind, has been growing slowly for a couple of years and I have watched
the tiny buds grow from smaller than pin heads, to open for the first time a few days ago. (September 2010)

    Looks a bit like Leucopogon. There are many species in this genus….

  • Thanks Michael! I’m sure you are right, having just spent a bit of “Google time” looking, so I’m going to submit to Australian Native Plants in the hope someone can confirm the variety for me. Thank you!

    You may have stumbled upon a new species, Trish. Maybe it should be named after you! Anyway, whatever it is it’s very pretty.

  • Gary, it’s absolutely gorgeous, the flowers are the tiniest I have ever seen and the detail in the image invisible to the naked eye.
    I don’t think I can name it though, as Michael V. has pointed me in the direction of the Leucopogon family :)
