|Petalochilus hillmanii. The square yellow teeth at the base of the labellum can be seen above;|
the beautiful cluster below shows the range of colours present in this - and related - species.
|Spotted Sun Orchid Thelymitra ixioides|
|Large Wedge-pea, Gompholobium grandiflorum. |
Don't you love rolling that around the tongue? A serious pea this one, with the
standard (the big top petal) some 35mm across.
|Velvet Mint-bush Prostanthera incana.|
A close relative of garden herbs (sorry you can't smell it), this one
is limited on the south coast, though widely spread elsewhere.
|Coneseeds, Conospermum ellipticum.|
An atypical member of Proteaceae - waratahs, grevilleas, banksias, proteas, notros etc.
In Western Australia Conospermums flowering en masse turn whole plains hazy, hence 'smoke bushes'.
