Mickey-Mouse Plant; Ochna
Usually flowers and fruits as a shrub about 1-3 tall.
An introduced species originally from southern Africa, now naturalised in NEQ, CEQ and southwards to coastal central New South Wales. Altitudinal range in NEQ from near sea level to 800 m. Usually grows as a garden weed, apparently distributed by fruit-eating birds but also found in disturbed rain forest.
A commonly grown garden plant that produces yellow flowers and small black berries, now escaped because birds spread the seeds.
