Basket Bush

Basket Bush 1

Here is another flowering plant that we have seen in many places recently – at Yanchep, Bold Park, Kings Park and on Buckland Hill in Perth’s western suburbs, where these photos were taken. It is called Basket Bush (Spyridium globulosum) and grows on the West Australian coast from around Geraldton to past Esperance.

From a distance, Basket Bush appears to be covered in white flowers. But on closer inspection most them turn out to be flower buds, which look like tiny cauliflowers (above). However, among all the buds you do occasionally find some open flowers.
