Swan River Myrtle

Swan River Myrtle 1

We have also noticed this low sprawling shrub with fronds of pink flowers in Kings Pak recently. You can even spot it from the road as you drive along the side of the park. It is called Swan River Myrtle (Hypocalymma robustum) and the flowers have five petals and about 60 stamens.
