Several years ago I was doing some potting-up in a community nursery and the manager handed me a plant in a tube, which I planted in a shady area of my garden. It's grown beautifully in that spot and actually I have to prune it back so I can get down the path and access the grey-water pump. It pleases me very much.
Adriana quadripartita (glabrous form) Rare Bitter-bush really is rare, classified as endangered in Victoria. It's known from only a handful of spots on the calcareous sands on the Bellarine and Mornington peninsulas, but grows very easily from cuttings so it is being used in coastal planting. The male and female plants are separate and the one in my garden is a female. The three-armed styles are usually red (mine is very pale red), petals are absent, and there are up to seven flowers on each short spike.
