= Prostanthera serpyllifolia ssp. microphylla, the "green"-flowered form. I have found it virtually impossible to capture the beautiful "light aqua blue-green suffused violet" colour of the flowers in a photograph. zCertainly heavily covered with flowers already; I think we are in for an early season this year.

Is there a red-flowering form of P serpyllifolia on Eyre Peninsula, Peter?
This little bush is flowering beautifully jj.

Yes, Julie. I see you have already photographed the red-flowered form of P. serpyllifolia ssp. serpyllifolia at Yeldulknie. There are smaller leaved red flowered forms on EP which fit P. serpyllifolia ssp. microphylla as well as even larger-leaved green-flowered forms that fit P. serpyllifolia ssp. serpyllifolia on the southern part of EP. There is also a distinctive narrow-flowered small-leaved (often pinkish--) red form on KI that fits P. serpyllifolia ssp. microphylla. The whole range of P. serpyllifolia forms constitute a species complex that defies simple classification - the division into two subspecies on leaf size is somewhat arbitrary.

Thankyou k, for that comprehensive answer to my question. It seems I will need to be careful naming these if I come across them again.
