Awesome mate, thanks for showing us the photos, it is amazing to see the harsh conditions it is growing in.

I hope you enjoyed your couple of days away in the bush.

Cheers

I've found a place to collect seed in March or whenever they set

In Canberra? The references I've seen say they flower in their range in Spring and fruit in December, YMMV.

Am close to their native range but I've never seen one. Illegal in NSW anyhow, even tho they're native.

Chemovars would be of interest :)

No cutting took unfortunately, so I am going to air layer/plant seed. The property owner guided me to it as he had people from the university surveying the land and they mentioned the significance of it etc

Ta for feedback on cuttings, it's good to know what doesn't work. I've heard cuttings can be difficult too

Bonsai would be interesting. Send pics when you do it please?

These are not australe but it looks like erythroxylum's make pretty nice bonsai :)
