Ball Honeymyrtle

Melaleuca nodosa

A shrub or small tree with the usual papery bark of melaleucas. The inset(top left) shows how the cluster of flowers consisting only of styles and anthers matures to produce a cluster of fruits(inset lower right).
At Tumbi Wetlands this is the tree that is dominant in the secondary canopy, under the eucalypts.
