Botany picture #108: Eremophila longifolia

Spent all day yesterday in an internal workshop so there was no decent post to be expected.

A colleague told me that this plant we encountered during my recent field trip was Eremophila longifolia (Scrophulariaceae). Well, it is obvious that this is an Eremophila, or Emu Bush, but the species I would not know myself. The genus is very large and an important part of the flora of the arid zone here in Australia. And many of them are very pretty.
