Description

Some characteristics that can be seen from the plant include simple leaves, numerous stamens distinctive smell once leaves are broken as well as the presence of bark/wood like branches which leaves me to place this plant in the Myrtaceae family

By breaking down the flower structure we can see that the leaves are arranged alternately , accompanied by spiky green and creamy flowers that follow to the end of the branch which resembles a brush. Bark like branches therefore suggest that this plant belongs to the melaleucas Genus.

This plant was found next to a wet region close to a body of water which correlates with the adaptive habitat that this plant is commonly found in ( swamps and boggy places ). Which is further evidence for the plant being identified as the Melaleuca Flavovirens.
