Leucopogon parviflorus (Coast Beard Heath) is one of Australia's native currants. Coast Beard Heath has a small white fruit that have a pleasant lemon taste that is not only eaten by humans but by numerous bird species including seagulls, silver-eyes and superb fairywrens. Coast Beard Heath grows to 1.5 metres height and being a coastal heath plant, will require drainage. It does best in morning sun or filtered light in sandy soils. It needs moisture. Coast Beard Heath grows in sheltered and filtered light areass in Sydney but it also thrives on the Great Ocean Road where there is high rainfall with the heath ecological structure protecting individual plants from the very cold and strong winds. It needs to be kept out of high heat winds so place it in a sheltered place under a tree's canopy for best results.
