Southern Cross

Southern Cross

We were pleased to see this flower growing in the botanic garden at Kings Park recently, since it is native to the Albany area, where we have seen it growing wild in the past. It is called Southern Cross (Xanthosia rotundifolia) and is indeed reminiscent of the stars in what must be Australia’s favourite constellation.
