This hairy rainforest shrub is the only Australian representative of the Kiwi fruit family. Interestingly it was first named Dillenia andreana by Mueller, probably due to to the superficial similarly of the appearance of the flowers to Dillenia. But of course, Dillenia is from a totally different family altogether (See Dillenia alata).
Andre’s Saurauia is often found along water courses in lowland to upland rainforest. The leaves are alternate, wider nearer the apex (i.e. obovate-shaped), have toothed margins, and are hairy throughout. The flowers are borne in the leaf axils and often facing downwards. The petals are white or white with hints of pink.
