E.polyclada.JPG (19560 bytes)Eremophila polyclada: grows in inland areas of all mainland Australian states except Western Australia. Its common name is Flowering Lignum. Eremophila polyclada is a medium, rather straggly shrub with large white or pale lilac tubular flowers. Flowering is sporadic throughout the year. The throats of the flowers have brown spots. They may be a visual signal to insects that there is nectar at the base of the flowers. Similar pollination signals are found in Westringia flowers. Because of its straggly growth habit, Eremophila polyclada is best grown in native shrubberies.
The species name means many branches.
Propagation is from cuttings but we have found that this species is slower to strike than other Eremophilas.
