Not So Common Hovea

Common Hovea 1

We noticed this Common Hovea in flower in the bushland of Bold Park, Perth yesterday – along the Hovea Walk, in fact. There were only a few plants in flower, but we saw a lot of Hovea while walking in Kings Park a week back. It was a sunny day (despite being winter here), which showed up the purplish tinge in the flowers nicely.

Actually the flowers aren’t always blue/purple. A few plants have white flowers.
