Leucopogon parviflorus whole Leucopogon parviflorus close

Even in early spring these shrubs were covered in the small flowers of L. parviflorus. The fruits, produced later in the year, are feasted upon by seaside birds.

Hardly found at all inland it is nevertheless very common all along the western coast and the southern coast to Albany in South west Australia.
