Eremophila debilis

Common names winter apple or amulla, endemic to east coast extending from north Queensland to near the border between New South Wales and Victoria in Australia. (wikipedia)

It is a prostrate shrub with lance-shaped leaves and white, rarely deep mauve flowers. Spreading weak stems up to 1 metre long.

Flowering mainly in spring and summer, followed by rounded, fleshy, white to reddish purple fruits.

Sometimes called Myoporum debile. It is suitable as a groundcover as long as the soil is reasonably well-drained.
