Author's notes

If I have identified this species correctly, I wouldn't have placed it in the 'other tree' category based on its growth habit in this area. In the last five years this plant hasn't gotten any larger it is less than 1.5m high.

ID is right, and it can develop into a small tree in wetter areas, though it is probably more often seen as a shrub. That's the problem with classifying things by growth habit. Trees have to be small before they are big and so forth. Shrubs and "wildflowers" is another grey area - how big and woody does a plant have to be before you call it a shrub rather than a big herb?
