ELAEOCARPUS
 
The Quandongs range from stately trees of the rainforest to shrub like plants.
They all have many clusters of bell shaped flowers with ‘ballerina’ type margins in common. The smaller the flowers the more of them.
E. obovatus and E. reticulatus literally lights up with masses of white flowers. They are followed by blue shiny berries that attract fruit eating birds.
