Coastal Banjine

Coastal Banjine 1

We saw lots of this pretty pink flower growing on exposed limestone cliff tops of the Cape to Cape Track, while we were hiking south of Perth last week. It is called Coastal Banjine (Pimelea ferruginea) and grows along the coast from about Dongara to Esperance.

It is nearing the end of its flowering season at present and is very popular with small, glossy black beetles.
