Harsh Hakea

Harsh Hakea 1

We have noticed Harsh Hakea frequently in our recent travels around Perth. It isn’t a very striking plant, since it often sprawls untidily across the ground, though is sometimes erect as shown above. It has very spiky leaves, but surprisingly pretty flowers, which are just coming into bloom at present.

The fruit is also rather spiky looking.

The fruit eventually dries out into hard seed pods. These photos were all taken on Buckland Hill in the past few days.
