Blueboy

Blueboy 6

The Blueboy (Stirlingia latifolia) flowers that we featured back in August have now turned into bunches of distinctive blue-grey furry fruit or seed heads. And despite what you might guess, the “blue” in Blueboy does not refer to these fruit. The name reportedly comes from the fact that soil taken from near a Blueboy will turn blue if it is used to make pottery.
