Cockies Tongue

Cockies Tongue

We spotted these striking red flowers yesterday in the Rocky Bay area, north of Fremantle near the Swan River. They are called Cockies Tongue for fairly obvious reasons, and are found around the West Australian coast from about Carnarvon to the South Australian border.

We have seen Cockies Tongue in quite a few parts of Perth recently, including Buckland Hill, Kings Park, Bold Park and Yanchep. They aren’t quite as profuse as they were last year … yet, anyway. They certainly add some bright colour to the bush in winter.
