Zieria granulata, llawarra Zieria

Zieria granulata 
 Illawarra Zieria
This native plant is listed as one of the threatened plants of the Illawarra and occurs in a small area of local government managed sites in Shellharbour and Kiama.
It is worth growing in the home garden because it is a great texture plant . The foliage is covered in small raised dots which release an intensely aromatic citrus smell when crushed or bruised.
It grows to be an attractive rounded shrub to about 2.5 metres and is smothered in tiny white flowers during Spring.
2017 update: I no longer have any plants for sale.
