Amperea (Euphorbiaceae) 3:637

 

  
Amperea xiphoclada is a distinctive native undershrub that is almost leafless (or totally leafless when flowering), and has strongly angled stems. The erect branches form dense clumps (vaguely like a monocot tussock). It is common in dry places, but can aslo be found in open, well drained sites in wetter areas, even button grass plains.
