|Pityrodia (or Dasmyalla in some recent thinking) terminalis, Family Lamiaceae (or Chloanthaceae), Pindar.|
A glorious group, mostly bird-pollinated.
|Bridal Rainbow (!) Drosera macrantha Droseraceae, Leeuwin Naturaliste NP, far south-west.|
The sundews are insect-trapping and -digesting plants; this dramatic one is a vigorous climber.
|Yellow-eyed Flame Pea Chorizema dicksonii, John Forrest NP, Darling Ranges near Perth.|
|Snakebush Hemiandra pungens, Family Lamiaceae, Pinnacles NP, north of Perth.|
I have no idea of the origin of the common name; the genus, closely related to Prostanthera,
is entirely restricted to Western Australia.
|Pink Bottlebrush Beaufortia schaueri, Family Myrtaceae, Stirling Ranges NP.|
A widespread brilliant shrub in gravelly soils.
|Grass-leaf Hakea Hakea multilineata, Family Proteaceae, Goldfields Track east of Hyden.|
I could also have included some pink grevilleas from this family, but some restraint seemed in order...
|Coastal Banjine Pimelea ferruginea Family Thymeliaceae, Woody Island, Espereance.|
Eastern species ('rice flowers') are all white; this one grows on
coastal dunes and headlands right around the south-west coast.
|Pink Milkmaids Burchardia rosea Family Colchicaceae, Kalbarri NP.|
A superb pink lily growing in winter-wet sand in heathlands in the mid-north.
Note that by the time you read this I'll be in Patagonia (this is 'one I prepared earlier');
this means that I won't be able to respond to any comments you care to make until I get back.
