As we toured Tasmania in August it was obvious that this was further south and so still in the grip of the winter months than the wildflower laden latitudes of western Australia where we had been staying. There were very few wayside plants but this was in full flower and could be seen with white or red flowers as well. E. impressa is found in Victoria and South Australia as well as Tasmania.
