Eremophila oppositifolia is a subtle shrub, not showy like the grevilleas or the wattles, but it is one the draws the most admiration from visitors.

Eremophila oppositifolia “Moonlight” white form of the oppositifolia emu bush – August 2019

This one lives at the top of a slope, with little care and attention. It flowers in late autumn and early spring. The little brown honey eaters hang from the branches reaching into the delicate tubular white flowers with their long beaks. The flowers also attract the bees.

Even when not flowering, the grey-green leaves and trunk have an understated charm. Planted in 2014.
