Gymea Lily

Gymea Lily 1

We noticed this impressive Gymea Lily (Doryanthes excelsa) flowering in Kings Park last weekend. The huge flower head is made up of many flowers, and stands atop a long stem about 6m above the ground. They are native to the New South Wales Central Coast, between about Newcastle and Wollongong. We also saw the Gymea Lily below about two months ago, growing wild in the Royal National Park in Sydney.
