Prince-of-Wales Feather

Prince of Wales Feather 1

We noticed this feathery flower growing among weeds in the bushland at Lake Joondalup. It looks a bit like a weed itself, but is actually a native plant that grows in most of mainland Australia.

It has the amusingly apt common name Prince-of-Wales Feather (Ptilotus polystachyus). You will also see it growing in Kings Park and Bold Park.
