MyrtellaOnce apon a time, when the Cairns Northern Beaches were wild places, the season of winter was coloured by the magenta and mauve flowers of a native heath called myrtella. It still grows in the environmental reserve at the northern end of Holloways Beach. Being a heath, it grows best in vegetation that is burned or disturbed by strong winds. Its scientific name was Myrtella although it has now been changed to Lithomyrtus obtusa.
