Eremophila Glabra ssp Glabra

Common Emu Bush

The common emu bush is a shrub growing to about 1m high by 1m across. It is seen sometimes in gardens, although its more interesting brother Eremophila Maculata (spotted emu bush) is more common. In the Murray Mallee, the flowers are rather sparse and not easy to see. The flowers have a characteristic elongated shape with the brightly coloured petals splitting and folding out, one segment folds underneath and three shorter ones fold upwards.
