(tall heath) is a leggy shrub restricted to the State’s central east coast growing on Jurassic dolerite in dry sclerophyll forest on sheltered slopes above the Apsley and Douglas rivers, and along the banks of the Douglas River. While most occurrences are reserved in the Douglas-Apsley National Park, there are only about 7,000 mature individuals occupying about 2 ha over a small range of about 15 km, putting the species at risk from inadvertent or chance events. Other threats include inappropriate fire regimes and infection by the exotic soil-borne plant pathogen Phytophthora cinnamomi.
