Chenille Honeymyrtle

Chenille Honeymyrtle 3

Chenille Honeymyrtle (Melaleuca huegelii) has almost finished its flowering season, though you will still some bushes with flowers. This one is on Buckland Hill in the Perth suburb of Mosman Park. As a bonus, you can now find Christmas Beetles on some of the flowers. They are about as big as your thumb and obviously don’t know when Christmas is – we’ve been watching for them and only found our first one during the past week.
