Northern Territory plants

Surely it wouldn't be too difficult to come up with some imaginative names for some of the common shrubs in the Northern Territory.

Turkey Bush Calytrix extipulata
Cattle Bush Trichodesma zeylanicum
Emu Bush Eremophila sp.
Quinine Bush Petalostigma quadriloculare
Butterfly Bush Petalostylis cassioides
But, despite their names and their prevalence, their beauty is arresting.
