Description

Single bush/plant growing in public gardens in Whangarei, built on the site of an old stone quarry. The flower is similar to Bottlebrush but more rounded, rather than a long brush shape. The leaves are similar to leaves on mimosa, although not sensitive that I could tell. Not a large plant, quite low growing. I had to get on my knees to take the photo.
