Tassel Flower

Tassel Flower 1

We saw this Tassel Flower (Leucopogon verticillatus) growing in the forest at Beedelup Falls, while we were in the southwest of Western Australia recently. It looks rather like a bamboo or other exotic garden escape, but is actually a native plant. It grows from about Perth to Albany and is common in the southern forests.

It has almost finished its flowering season (Aug-Nov) but you can still see a few of the little pink flowers.
