Blueboy

Blueboy 1

You’ll see plenty of these flowers (or buds to be more accurate) in Bold Park and Kings Park at present. They are called Blueboy (Stirlingia latifolia) and grow on the leafy plants shown below.

They reportedly take their odd name from the fact that plaster made from sand where the plant is growing turns out blue.
