No, it's actually a gorgeous little ground cover that grows in coastal NSW, including the Illawarra. It is widespread south from the Lismore area, but quite uncommon. Although hard to come by in nurseries, it is very attractive with its flush of purple flowers in spring, and it really should be more widely grown. Here's a picture - just imagine this in your cottage garden:

|Pick me - a local plant that deserves to be|
cultivated more widely
Would you grow Schelhammera undulata, I mean Native Crocus, if you found it in a nursery?
