|Acmena smithii Family Myrtaceae, 'Lilly Pilly', Nowra, New South Wales.|
An attractive rainforest tree, with edible fruits (I make jam from them).
(Some taxonomists would now incorporate Acmena into Syzygium.)
|Verticordia grandis, Gathercole Nature Reserve in the Wheatbelt east of Perth.|
|Dianella caerulea, Family Phormiaceae, Canberra.|
|Nymphaea violacea Family Nymphaeceae, Fogg Dam near Darwin.|
|Pandorea doratoxylon, Spearwood, Family Bignoniaceae, Kata Tjuta, Northern Territory.|
It is claimed that the time of collection of the type specimen on Norfolk Island
corresponded with a plague of unspecified insects...
|Corybas hispida, Canberra.|
There has been a move recently to break up Corybas and return some species (including this one)
to Brown's genus Corysanthes, but as usual that has been staunchly resisted
by the Australian botanical establishment.
|Scaevola parvibarbata Family Goodeniaceae, Nyngan, New South Wales.|
|Nepenthes sp., National Botanic Gardens, Canberra.|
The story of these wonderful carnivorous plants will doubtless appear in this blog at some point.
|Hypericum gramineum, Morton National Park, New South Wales.|
