Wild Flowers of Central Australia
Minnie Daisy
Minuria leptophylla

A small perennial flowering plant, often seen as a clump between 10-30 cm high, flowering in winter and early spring. Can be found growing in a variety of vegetation and soil types, especially red sandy loam, as found in the outback.

This is a striking looking plant, that catches the eye when driving along the roadside and highways, especially in Central Australia. The plant is often grazed by feral and stock animals.

The flower measures about 20-30 mm across, with petals that can be white, lilac, or mauve, around a yellow centre. It has linear leaves, that along with the stems are slightly hairy.
