The Allocasuarina nana, a Dwarf She-oak, is looking spectacular. The male flowers are making the whole plant appear reddish-brown. We don't have a female plant in the garden here, but the flowers would be a brighter red and appear along the stems.

|Bolwarra (Eupomatia laurina) growing densely in part shade.|

|The rather unusual Privet-Leafed Mallee.|
And last but not least, here's a shot of some Pennyworts (Hydrocotyle peduncularis and Hydrocotyle tripartita) spreading happily among our other groundcovers. Pennyworts prefer damp soil but can cope with a fair bit of sun and competition from other species. They are an excellent addition to mixed native meadows where they can ramble among other species.
|Hydrocotyle peduncularis has broad leaves, while H. tripartita||has smaller leaves in three distinct parts.|
