Hey guy's !
I'm Rusty , I live on the south east coast of N.S.W. I must admit a recent fascination with aussie bush foods , particularly medicinal plants etc . I do a lot of hiking and keep my eye's open to see what's been eaten in the bush .
I was out this morning and noticed handfull's of leaves on the ground in 4 seperate piles . In the attached photo you can see the leaf of the bush in question and the bush itself behind my hand , you can also see in the background (middle right) one of the scattered piles of leaves . The bush/plant/shrub was about 4-5 foot tall , a white fur grew on the back of the leaves and the stem . The bush was growing everywhere high on a mountain side . It resembled a wild tobacco plant but is not . I've looked through my books and cant seem to find anything about it .
What plant is it ? Is it edible or medicinal ?
Any thought's would be appreciated !
