It splits into 4 re-curving lobes (tepals) that are hairless and cream-coloured on the inside. Comment: Prolonged observation of a local population of more than 50 specimens (growing in a restricted area) has shown an intriguing process of flowering. Fine reticulate venation is visible under a lens (3, 4 & 5). The strongly raised mid vein has clearly visible hairy domatia along its length helping in identification of this species (5). Flowers feature a long tapering style and 5 stamens with distinctive anthers (3). Impressed lateral veins on the upper surface add rigidity to the lamina. Venation is clearly visible on lower leaf surface with mid rib and laterals veins being strongly raised (5).

This densely foliated shrub or small tree reaches less than 10m in height. Vegetative features in identification of a native tree or shrub can be divided into a number of categories. Distribution: North Qld. Brisbane’s trees provide benefits that are important to our city’s liveability and our subtropical landscape character. This subtropical rainforest species is rare due to its very limited distribution range and diminishing habitat. We hope to raise the awareness to the high conservation value these remaining areas deserve. Leaf apex is acute ending in a fine point, base shape is cuneate. The beautiful drooping flower racemes are up to 40cm long and appear on the trunk (cauliflorous) over late autumn and winter.

Lobes have irregular toothed margins with small spines and are; up to 25cm long with a dark green and glossy upper surface, hairless with a firm and stiff texture (5). Due to its small natural distribution range and extensive clearing of subtropical and warm temperate rainforests, the Rusty Plum Niemeyera whitei has become a relatively rare native tree species. Leaf apex shape narrows very gradually into a hard, sharp tip, base shape is cuneate. In 2002, Queensland joined Green Fleet, a project that offsets carbon emissions by planting trees.

It inhabits coastal environments, the tablelands of the Great Dividing range and drier inland locations (Picture 1). Domatia are visible in the forks of lateral veins on the lower leaf surface (5). The large wing-like buttress roots that develop on older specimens are a good initial identification feature (2). Flowers are supported by a primary stalk and as the common name suggests, the handsome flowers are fragrant. The cup-shaped fruit, a capsule, releases numerous seeds by opening valves at the apex.
