This is a very open twiggy shrub or small slender tree of the Mallow family. It grows in wet forests in the east of Victoria and New South Wales in Australia. The flowers are blue to violet and it flowers over a long period. from early spring to well into the summer. I grew one from a cutting and it has grown to over 3 metres in my garden as the slenderest tree I ever saw, with long sparse slender branches. It is not spectacular, but the continuous flowering is attractive. It sets a lot of seed, but I cannot yet report on how easily it grows from seed.
