Flowers appear as a profuse golden rods in winter and spring.Traditional uses by the indigenous people include grinding the seed to make a flour or edible paste when moistened.
The sweet exudation, produced by the plant is either sucked straight from the tree or dissolved in water to make a refreshing drink.
It was referred to by the early settlers as Bush Lollies.
