Origin: Australia
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterYellow/orange flowersEthnomedical plant.

After the yellow flowers are pollinated, large, globular, green, papery fruit develop, which eventually turn brown and split along the seams to release their seed. The small black seeds are woven in a dense mat of fine silky hairs.

The flowers are edible raw and are quite pleasant. The tap root of young plants is also edible when roasted and has moderate levels of most nutrients. The same is true of the Northern Territory species, whose root is also pounded and used extensively as medicine for sores.
