Mottlecah 1

When we are in Kings Park, we mainly look for wildflowers along the bush trails. But on our last visit, we went for a wander through the botanic garden, which has areas planted with flora from different parts of Western Australia.

The Mottlecah (Eucalyptus macrocarpa) was looking spectacular with its silvery grey leaves and large pink-red flowers. This sprawling mallee tree sometimes called Rose of the West, and is native to the area running from Geraldton thought the wheatbelt.
