This twining creeper is common over the vegetation of the Bluff. Male and female plants are separate. The creamy white flowers give way to the feathery seed heads, perfect for dispersal by the wind and for use by native birds to make their nests. It bears masses of starry, creamy flowers in mid-winter, which are followed by fluffy seed heads on female plants.
