Leucopogon collinus (Ericaceae) 2:436

Leucopogon collinus is a very common and widespread species. It is an erect shrub that is very common in sandy heaths and dry sclerophyll forests. It has distinctly recurved leaf margins and flowers clustered at the ends of the branches, looking like small, fluffy white balls at the ends of the branches. It is sometimes confused with L. ericoides. However, the flowers of the latter species extend down the stems.
