Pimelea sericostachya (Thymelaeaceae)

Pimelea sericostachya

A seemingly very common shrub of eucalypt woodland. Interestingly, there does not seem to be a great deal of pictures of this online. The flowers and stems are rather hairy with shiny white hairs. The yellowish or greenish flowers are arranged in a dense terminal cluster.

About David Tng

I am David Tng, a hedonistic botanizer who pursues plants with a fervour. I chase the opportunity to delve into various aspects of the study of plants. I have spent untold hours staring at mosses and allied plants, taking picture of pollen, culturing orchids in clean cabinets, counting tree rings, monitoring plant flowering times, etc. I am currently engrossed in the study of plant ecology (a grand excuse to see 'anything I can). Sometimes I think of myself as a shadow taxonomist, a sentimental ecologist, and a spiritual environmentalist - but at the very root of it all, a "plant whisperer"!
