Bush Sauce

Whilst bushwalking I discovered an interesting find. The “Bush Sauce” plant or  Saucerusstylus a member of the native gumtreeusmaximus family combines a fern-like foliage with a hardwood bark texture growing to several metres in height. Evolving to suit climatic conditions this specimen displays masses of brightly coloured, bird attracting flowers in early summer and produces tasty berries for a nutritious bush sauce. This genuine species is often imitated by noxious weeds however sap-sucking, aphid infested posers are no match for the original.
