Purple Mirbelia

Mirbelia speciosa

This tiny slip of a plant is able to grow into a bush up to a metre tall. For at least 2 years after the fire in December 2005 its seedlings are spring up between the sedges and other seedlings germinating.
This little pea plant is easy to recognise if you look for the set of three leaves at each node.
