Blue Devils

Blue Devils 1

We recently noticed this little plant flowering at Blackboy Ridge in the Chittering Valley north of Perth. It looks a little like a thistly weed, but is actually a native plant called Blue Devils (Eryngium pinnatifidum). The flowers can be blue, mauve or white. It grows in the southwest corner of Western Australia, from about Geraldton to Albany.
